NEW YORK, NY — Residents in New Jersey and Illinois pay more in property taxes than the rest of the country, according to a new report Wednesday from the financial news and opinion site 24/7 Wall St.. The authors reviewed the effective rate — meaning the total amount of property taxes paid each year as a percentage of the total value of all occupied homes — for every state. The data is from the 2015 fiscal year and came from the right-leaning Tax Foundation.

New Jersey’s effective property tax rate ranked No. 1 in the country, the report found, followed by Illinois, New Hampshire, Wisconsin and Vermont. On average, state and local governments across the country bring in about $1,500 a year in property taxes per person. But in New Jersey, that number is more than $3,000 per capita.

  • Effective property tax rate: 2.16 percent
  • Median home value: $334,900 (6th highest)
  • Per capita property taxes: $3,074.43
  • Median household income: $80,088 (2nd highest)

Residents in the Northeast appear to pay the highest rates, with New Jersey, New Hampshire and Vermont all appearing in the top five. Here are the 10 states with the highest effective property tax rates:

  1. New Jersey
  2. Illinois
  3. New Hampshire
  4. Wisconsin
  5. Vermont
  6. Texas
  7. Nebraska
  8. Connecticut
  9. Ohio
  10. Rhode Island

Looking for something less pricey? Consider moving to Hawaii, where the effective property tax rate is just .29 percent. If that sounds dreamy, consider this — the median Hawaiian home is worth more than $617,000 and the typical household earns about $77,000 a year, so don’t forget to bring a checkbook and perhaps buy a lottery ticket upon arrival. Alabama, Louisiana, West Virginia and Wyoming rounded out the five states with the lowest property tax rates.

Property taxes are the single largest money-maker for local governments and they’re spent almost entirely at a local level. They are generally used to fund fire, police, schools, roads, cleaning and repairs.
