Property Tax Rates By State: Ranked Lowest to Highest [2024]

Property Tax Rates By State
Property Tax Rates By State
Josh Rapaport
December 16, 2023

In this high-value blog post, we ranked property tax rates by state from lowest to highest in 2024.

We also put together a table of states with the lowest property taxes based on the “effective” tax rate, which means it factors average home values with average property taxes paid.

It’s important to note that while most U.S. homeowners pay property taxes, some properties could be tax exempt for a variety of reasons (e.g., homestead exemptions, 100 percent disabled veteran).

Okay, let’s explore the property taxes by state ranked best to worst this year!
