A Quick Look at Big Cities Big Property Tax Rates

Property taxes can impact an investor’s net profit. But where are property taxes highest and lowest among the big cities?

Houston perennially ranks highest, according to ATTOM Data Solutions. The property tax rate as of 2016 for Houston was 2.17% of the assessed value of the home. But Houstonians pay no state income tax.

Chicago ranked number two among the big cites with the highest tax rates, at 2.15% in 2016. A dubious distinction, to be sure. But the tax rates differ among ChicagoLand’s many suburbs. And the impact of taxes is often mitigated by other critical factors: in Chicago, for instance, many close-in suburban homes are affordably priced, safe, and in well-located, potentially long-term appreciating areas.
