According to the analysis by Tax Foundation, New Jersey residents pay the highest in the country - a median of $8,797.
To calculate median property tax amounts, the Tax Foundation used the median amount of taxes paid for owner-occupied homes between 2017 and 2021, according to U.S. Census American Community Survey data. The data excludes property taxes paid by businesses and renters.
Coming in second was Connecticut ($6,153), then New Hampshire ($6,036), New York ($5,884), and Massachusetts rounding out the top five ($5,091).
California rounded out the top 10, ranking 9th on the list ($4,279).
By comparison, the state with the least expensive property taxes was Alabama ($646).
Property taxes generate 32.2% of state and local revenues in the U.S., according to the study.
