A new study released by NAHB
based on the latest data available (2017) reveals a nearly $11,000 difference in average property tax bills among the most and least expensive congressional districts.
The highest average property tax bill was $11,389 in 2017, paid by home owners residing in New York’s 17th congressional district (Rockland County and portions of Westchester County). By contrast, the lowest average annual real estate tax bill was $425, paid by home owners in Alabama’s 4th district, which comprises Franklin, Colbert, Marion, Lamar, Fayette, Walker, Winston, Cullman, Lawrence, Marshall, Etowah and DeKalb counties.
The congressional districts in which home owners pay the 20 largest and 20 smallest annual average property tax bills are shown in the tables below.
