Westchester Tops The Nation With Highest County Taxes

Westchester Tops The Nation With Highest County Taxes

If you are a property owner in Westchester County you will probably not be surprised to learn that we lead the nation in high property taxes.


According to LoHud.com Zillow announced in 2013 Westchester County's median property-tax bill was $13,842, while the rest of the U.S.'s was $2,132. That is a huge difference, right? 

Here is the article from LoHud. Westchester Leads Nation With 13842 Median Property tax Bill

But before you think..."Okay then...I will go to Rockland County"...think again. Rockland County was the next highest. Rockland's median property tax bill was $10,550. 

And if you are thinking about going to Monroe County in upstate New York they "pay among the highest property taxes compared to household income."

So are you thinking about New Jersey?...Well I hate to break it to you but all the highest property tax bills were either in New York or New Jersey.

Remember this is county wide. I am sure there are some cities that have crazy taxes too in different cities. But we are focusing on counties. 

Are you asking yourself where are the lowest taxes found? Well for that you will have to go south. 

Alabama (where I am originally from...Roll Tide) has 4 of the 10 lowest median tax bills nationwide. The other lowest taxes can be found in Mississippi, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Oklahoma.
