πŸ’²Top 10 States with the Worst Property tax. Some states are really bad and border on offensive.


What is going on everyone? Welcome back
to the world according to Briggs a channel that tells you about places in a
list format almost everything we do can be put into a list form what you need
from the store is a list things you need to do on the weekend sometimes can be
put in a list your favorite movies and TV shows can be made into a list some
people have lists about the times they’ve been arrested called a rap sheet
others list how many times they’ve been married sometimes you can list how many
times you’ve been divorced my cousin is divorced but tells everyone
he’s widowed because someone dropped a house on his ex when you want rid of a
house and don’t have the luxury of letting a twister take it away you have
to do what they call listing your house listing it for sale when buying a house
they list all the fees and whatnot you’ll have to pay one of those whatnots
is property tax most of the time it isn’t terrible but there are some states
that make it terrible by taking too much in property taxes and that’s what we’re
listing today the states that stick it to you when you’re buying your dream
home so let’s find out which ones do in my top 10 states with the highest
property tax number 10 Rhode Island for such small state Rhode Island has a very
large property tax the property tax rate in Rhode Island is one point six six
percent and the median home price is about two hundred forty five thousand
much higher than the national average this equals out to the average resident
pain a little over $4,000 a year in property tax for a lot of Americans
that’s more than a month of take-home pay for a worker at the Amazon
Fulfillment Center just outside of Providence that is about a month and a
half of pay and for Jeff Bezos the guy that owns Amazon that’s how much he
makes before I can say the words Rhode Island actually he probably makes a lot
more than that in the amount of time you could say Rhode Island number nine New
York as if everything from a soda to a back-alley pharmaceutical purchase isn’t
already overpriced in New York you have property tax the property tax in New
York is about one point six eight percent this is much higher than the
country’s average of about 1.1 percent this combined with the median home price
of about one hundred ninety three thousand in the state makes the average
resident pay about five thousand or more depending on where in the state they
live if you live in New York City it’s a lot more I’d like to tell you how much
it is but my calculator doesn’t go that high yeah really though
New York City is so expensive that nobody lives there probably ever watches
my videos they can’t because they have three full-time jobs just to live in the
city with their four roommates in a two-bedroom apartment it’s crazy out
there but it’s worse than San Francisco be honest
number eight Nebraska Nebraska isn’t the first place you take your family on
vacation it’s probably not the 37th place either and to take it a step
further not many people voluntarily move to the Cornhusker state that may be a
good thing too since Nebraska is boring and has one of the highest property tax
rates in the country at 1.8 0% the median home price here is lower so
that’s good it still seems ridiculous to be paying $2,500 a year for a cheaper
than average home for a state that doesn’t have many people and is putting
a lot of effort into bringing people and companies into the state that tax rate
isn’t helping their efforts at all number seven Vermont Vermont is the
happiness state and no that isn’t their nickname the Green Mountain State is but
a study was done where Vermont was found to be one of the happiest states in the
country the sugar maple is Vermont state tree and everything in this state seems
to be flavored with maple it’s a big deal to them I think all that happiness
comes from a constant sugar high one thing that’ll ruin any high is will a
finding out someone stole your xbox and be paying taxes the average resident
here pays four thousand dollars a year on property taxes alone the property tax
rate here is one point eight three percent it is a nice state but that
property tax rates getting kinda up there and it turns a lot of people off
number six Texas everything is bigger in Texas
including property taxes Texas has a lot going for me
good people great economy awesome barbecue and killer tacos what else is
killer I mean besides having someone drop a house on you is paying taxes like
Vermont the property tax rate in the Lone Star State is one point eight three
percent the average Texan pays around thirty three hundred dollars in taxes a
year luckily once you get outside the big city you can find relatively
inexpensive homes with a lower mortgage which means you can find much lower
taxes the rate stays the same but since the calculation of taxes comes off the
value of your home it’s lower now that is common sense to ninety percent of us
but I’m sure at least one per what’s going to make a comment about how
is it going to be lower if that stays the same I guarantee someone was gonna
tell us that it’s called math number five Wisconsin the Badger State is good
state so in a way it’s almost acceptable to pay high property taxes the average
property tax here is just under two percent at one point nine four percent
now thankfully the median home price in Wisconsin is about $170,000 which is
much lower than the national average but the property taxes will still get you
for about thirty three hundred a year the thing about Wisconsin is this it’s a
really good state if you don’t mind the cold
almost all the cities are decent or great Milwaukee is probably the only
negative in the state and when you compare it to other quote unquote bad
cities in other states it’s really not that bad the people are down-to-earth
and nice to each other in the Badger State so like I said the property taxes
are high but it might be worth it number four Connecticut now unlike Wisconsin
most of the cities suck in Connecticut Hartford has a special level of suckage
which leads me to say they have some nerve having one of the highest property
taxes in the country Connecticut has a property tax of two point zero seven
percent the average resident here pays about fifty six hundred a year in
property taxes seeing that the median home price is higher than average at
three hundred thousand kind of explains why it’s so high I explained in another
video a couple weeks ago how most of Connecticut is bad but it still has a
couple of the wealthiest counties in the country between those counties and the
rest of the state there’s a world of difference the Constitution state is the
state’s nickname and I you know I really wanted to tie in some joke about taxes
in the Constitution and I came up with nothing if you think of something leave
it in the comment section below anyway it’s the Constitution state doesn’t just
stop at high property taxes they stick it to you again with the fourth highest
vehicle tax in the country it’s like a hustle in this state and the residents
are the suckers number three New Hampshire New Hampshire has the third
highest property tax rate in the country at 2.20% kind of steep the median home
price here costs about two hundred and forty five thousand dollars which is
higher than the national average this combined with the property tax means the
average resident pays about fifty four hundred dollars a year on the cheaper
property trust me there are some people paying a lot
more in these states they have the higher end properties New Hampshire has
to have high property tax they don’t have sales tax and they don’t have a
real state income tax I mean they only tax interest in dividends not actually
people’s hourly wages or whatever so they’ve got to get the money someplace
it’s either the high property tax or maybe I don’t know a giant statewide
bake sale it is a beautiful state so they kind of get a pass on a lot of
these things like when you tell someone but good thing you’re pretty you know
that type thing number two Illinois the property tax rate in Illinois is two
point three one percent with the median home price throughout the state being a
little under two hundred thousand dollars this would make the average
resident pay property taxes of about forty five hundred a year now the
average home price is really cheap in Illinois that is until you get to
Chicago with the two point three one they have to be raking it in with
Chicago alone Chicago’s in Cook County and holds 40% of the state’s population
and 50% of the crime here’s a good one just last week man caused chaos in the
Woodfield Mall in Chicago by driving his SUV through Sears and into the rest of
the mall nobody was killed thankfully but oddly enough he’s facing terrorism
charges but they say when the 22 year old Javier Garcia stands in court legal
experts feel the Terrorism charges will be dropped but it’s just they got a lot
of weird crime going on in Chicago maybe they do need those tax dollars to combat
stupidity and number one New Jersey ah New Jersey what can be said about the
Garden State that hasn’t been said by a man with Tourette’s that’s been doing
some heavy day-drinking and stubs his toe New Jersey has the highest property
tax in the country and I don’t know why normally when you pay top dollar for
something it’s something that’s really good the property tax in New Jersey is
two point four four percent the state’s median home price is just over three
hundred and twenty thousand dollars this makes the annual tax on a medium valued
house over seven thousand dollars a year that’s almost two thousand more than the
next on the list it’s like they’re trying to win a competition or something
like that who can gouge the residents the most it’s like them in Illinois
struggling battling for number one but New Jersey’s kicking their butt
congratulations New Jersey you’re number alright so that is my top 10 states with
the highest property tax hope you guys enjoyed it hope you got some information
out of it I hope you’ve learned to stay away from New Jersey don’t forget all

day be nice to each other you you

  • "Its called Math". Gotta love #'s. They don't lie, they don't cheat, they don't even care. If you know math….they can work in your favor. Loving it.

  • Hey Briggs try showing what they would do to a person if they refuse to pay this extortion money and the person refused to comply to there demands making it done to the final detail. Now that sir would open the eyes of the whole nation, people would be shocked to know this outcome !!!

  • Texas is only 15% desert so I don't understand why people always insist on using a desert image when mentioning Texas in a video.

  • How is this system fair to us homeowners? Are renters paying a fair share of taxes by some other means??

  • The ONLY state on that list I would live in, is Texas

  • Yes l stay far away from NJ.

  • And it's not just a question of where the tax rates are RIGHT NOW…. it's also a question of where… in a given state… they may be going in the future. If you buy a house, and the tax rate is SUBSEQUENTLY increased, it could lower the value of the house. So one should also consider the finances of a state, and the unfunded liabilities.

  • Illinois is a state currently being destroyed from within by inept democrats.

  • Great video Briggs. πŸ™‚

  • 10. Rhode Island 1.66% 9. New York. 1.68%plus 8. Nebraska. 1.80%
    7. Vermont 1.83% 6. Texas. 1.83% 5. Wisconsin 1.94% 4. Connecticut. 2. 4% 3. New Hampshire 2.20% 2. Illinois. 2.31% 1. New Jersey 2.44%

  • Cali #1 , PA # 2 Mostly all Liberal run states . Got to pay for all that Free Stuff .

  • Bull! Number one state with the highest property tax is occupied California!!

  • Keep in mind this is just the state level taxes. In some places there are also county taxes, and in many places there are also city taxes. After all of it is added up, in some of the more expensive places it really is cheaper to just rent.

  • How did California not make this list?

  • New Jersey the garbage state

    πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

  • The average effective property tax rate in Ohio is 1.57%, which ranks as the 13th highest in the U.S. However, tax rates vary significantly between Ohio counties and cities. The highest rates are in Cuyahoga County, where the average effective rate is 2.41%.

  • Looking at a single tax instead of the entire tax load is useless. A state can have a high property tax and an income tax but no sales tax (Oregon), or no income e tax but a sales tax (Washington) or only a property tax (New Hampshire).

  • 5:23 "Hartford (CT) has a Special Level of Suckage"! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

  • Politicians justify high taxes on basis limousines, 5 Star Restaurants, , junkets around the world, multiple homes cost money. Someone has to pay for that……the taxpayers! Duh! Just look at Congresswoman Maxine Waters. She lives in a $16 million dollar gated mansion! That stuff cost money.

  • Hey you forgot Massachusetts. I live in a shack and pay over $7000 a year!

  • Missed California. But I understand. It’s not a state anymore. It’s an illegal alien drug infested corrupt Communist Democratic Party shit hole.

  • I don't know who correct but I googled Ohio's ranking and it was number 9.

  • So the top 5 are all DemoKKKommieKKKrat controlled states. Why am I not surprised.

  • Connectifuck sucks, they tax everything, crooks,,, phony stolen valor pukes, assholes passed gun control, to lose HOW MUCH MONEY????? FUCKING ASSHOLES

  • Wow a tax video without California? Theyll probably watch this and remedy their mistake

  • I bet without watching they are all run by democrats

  • NJ has over 600 municipalities, most of which have schools, police and fire, water, road and administrative workers with great pensions and healthcare. It needs consolidation desperately……some towns are only 1 square mile. Most public sector employees per square mile = NJ.

  • Blue States for the most part. If it's liberal all taxes are high. Tax on gas is highest in Blue States.

  • Funny 3 RepubliCon states named in that one.. LoL..

  • I will stay in eastern Oklahoma. At least I can survive here. I did live in Texas for 4 years and found utlities, homes and rent are much higher than in Oklahoma other than that I did like Texas as long as I didn't drive to Dallas. I liked Ft. Worth but despised Dallas.

  • Andrea Gaye Scott Westfall

    I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS… GREAT WORK!!! YOU REALLY NAILED IT BY PICKING AMERICA TO EDUCATE US ON… PERFECT!!!

  • I live in New Jersey, it's stupid !!
    One bedroom apartment $1600 a month!!

  • LMAO! Let me guess! States controlled with Democratic parasites. you can always count on the Democrat spending more and getting less. WAY LESS than any other state. Democrats always have plenty of missing money! And when asked get that deer caught in the head lights look. But never have a clue where it went!

  • Everything said about connecticut is the sad truth

  • I really figured California would be the highest. Way to go Jersey! Just one more reason I will never go back!

  • Qudone

  • Property taxes aka public school taxes are a total joke. The public school system takes 80 to 85 percent of property taxes. The public school system also has their dirty hands in everything taxable including tobacco (96%), alcohol (94%), and gasoline (92%) and all for a mediocre education for kids. It's sickening. The unsustainably wasteful public school system needs to be shut down.

  • Tennessee has a super low property tax. But their school taxes will make you cry.

  • Dude… I live in Du Page Co. IL. My taxes are 7,100 for a nice size house. The people across the street are at 11,800. Not fancy,regular place. Gonna get out of here as soon as I can!

  • The tax rate is only part of the picture. In Texas on any home you live in (one only) you can deduct 20% of the assessed value from the taxable amount. In addition Texas deducts a disabled veterans property taxes by the same percentage the VA determined they are disabled. So a 30% disabled veteran is exempt from 30% of his property taxes (same rule – he has to actually live in the house and only one house).

  • You have to have a strong constitution to stomach the property tax in the Constitution State.

  • Connecticut is the Constitution State. How about linking the right to pursue happiness to the high property taxes?

  • You missed Pennsylvania very high school tax.

  • The Jazz Monastery

    meh…didn't need the rant about "lists". I'm new to your channel. I'll learn to skip forward to the content. Most really good youtubers literally just jump right in and don't waste ANY of the listerner's time. I do like your content though.

  • Okay, well THIS was eye-opening and very disturbing to me…hubby and I live in a TINY SW Ohio (not on your list) "village" in a modest family home with a nice yard, but by no means extravagant—yet we're paying annual property taxes like we're living in New Hampshire or Rhode Island! Hub is nearing retirement age, need I say we are going to sell our beloved home and get the heck out of this over-priced town? I sure hope there's someone out there who can afford to buy it when the time comes….

  • Elizabeth's Oracle

    Top 10 cities with gang infestation would be a good one. Unknowingly, I bought a house in Austin Texas in 2015 and sold it barely over two years later due to their very under publicized gang problem. Please consider reporting on this.

  • The Adventure of Jesus & Einstein

    We here in CT call the state β€œthe tax me state” πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­

  • How did California not come in on this list. I live in Lincoln California, 120 miles NE of San Francisco and pay $8000 a year in property taxes on a SF home, wtf.

  • Im shocked WI & NE was on the list.

  • I’m in Illinois about hour from Chicago. Bought my home for 109k, property taxes are just over $300 a month.
    Illinois just raised gas prices .19 cents a gallon, luckily I’m a stones throw away from Wisconsin border and get my gas there. I found some small way to beat the system πŸ˜†

  • NUMBER-ONE, and all I got was higher taxes!!! Looking on the bright side…we have pork-roll.

  • New Hampshire brings in state revenue from the sale of liquor to non-residents — and residents, too.

    "While most states leave liquor sales to private businesses, New Hampshire is one of 17 alcoholic beverage control statesβ€”β€œcontrol states” for short. By choice, the state prohibits the sale of liquor in private stores; liquor sales are limited to government-owned outlets only. (Wine is also sold at NHLC stores but can be sold at other retail outlets, such as grocery stores and convenience stores; the NHLC does not sell beer, though it does collect a tax on beer sales.)"

  • Lmao. I knew N.J was the highest property tax.

  • Are you doing to do a vid on the ugliest cities? I don't mean the architecture. Baltimore was #1.

  • Christopher Robertson

    Keep in mind, Texas does not have a state income tax. So their property taxes need to be a little higher.

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

  • Where I live in Texas. $2.74per/$100 of assessed value. Our taxes on our $345k home are $9500 a year and it get's worse every year (they've raised the assessed value the maximum they are allowed by law every year for the 5 years we've been here). Absolutely love Texas but we'll be moving when we retire. I'm not paying over $1,000 a month (taxes and insurance) for a house I'll own outright at that point.

  • Not only does CT have high property taxes on your home and Car but they have a tax for everything. The last new tax is a ten cent plastic bag tax at any store. How many bags do you get at Walmart when you shop. I had a two bedroom home in CT and paid $5K in property tax. So happy we moved out of CT.

  • California may have a low 1% property tax, but when you add:

    Additional tax rates to pay for local voter–approved debt.
    Property assessments.
    Mello–Roos taxes.
    Parcel taxes.

    It gets into 1.8% and higher territory. And high property values make it even worse.

  • And to top it off the fed deduction for SALT has been eliminated. Haha, that's ok because most of these states are progressive liberal cesspools anyway!

  • That's crook county!!!

  • Almost all states mentioned are liberal/democrat; All they do is prove everyday just how stupid, lazy, ignorant, and apathetic people are. The Declaration of Independence describes it perfectly.
    "Accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed"

  • Hey Briggs. Thanks for your videos. Can you also tackle the top ten states best and worst for various careers e.g. Teaching, nursing.

  • Woo Hoo nj wins again . I'll get out someday .

  • Rhode Island is a shit hole Sanctuary State pile of shit

  • All these states are shitthole Democrat Pig holes

  • What about County taxes. I paid close to 5000 per year on a house valued at less than 200k. Pittsburgh is the pits!

  • That's how NJ pays its corrupt politicians, from the locals, to the state officials, with the highest taxes in the US. NJ is a liberal state, …'nuff said.

  • States with their governments infested with brainwashed liberal fascist hypocrites….got to pay for all that FREE stuff for folks that refuse to work

  • Steven Stetler voting for TRUMP 2020

    DEMOCRATS DEMOCRATS DEMOCRATS DEMOCRATS DEMOCRATS DEMOCRATS DEMOCRATS

  • New Jersey really sucks in many ways. We are leaving for PA asap

  • You need to add the state income tax and sales tax into the equation to get the full weight of the tax burden.

  • I noticed the high tax states are also antigun states

  • Excellent πŸ‘Œ video as usual. Keep it up.! Mike

  • Texas has no income tax unlike NY which taxes everything!! I think at some point seniors need to be given a break on property taxes and a complete pass on school taxes.I have paid enough in school taxes to have sent my children to the best private schools in the country with no end in sight. Very few can afford to keep their homes with the promise of increases every year. Seniors need a break!

  • Taxation is theft !

  • The angry Carpenter

    I knew RI would be in this list

  • One thing I'm proud about my country
    is that the property tax rate for primary living is between 0.1~0.4% but mostly 0.15% or under.
    But we don't have any deduction for the property tax AFAIK

  • Umm… property taxes are done on a local level. Smaller cities will have higher rates.

  • I notice that this guy hates NJ πŸ˜‚ hardly any positive things to say πŸ˜‚ new jerseyans aren't all that bad unless your a prick to us then yea that's different

  • Property tax is the most insidious tax they've come up with yet. As soon as property began being taxed all property essentially started belonging to the government. No one owns property anymore. When you "buy" property you're really buying the right to rent directly from the government. If you stop paying they kick you off the property and auction it off to a new renter. And if you make improvements to the property the rent goes up.

  • Try drilling down to upstate New York at a bit over 4% per thousand. 20,000 a year in property taxes is not unusual

  • knuckledragging neanderthal

    I pay 2.76% of the value on my property in NYS.Β Not the 1.68% asserted here.

  • I’m pretty sure Briggs has lists of lists.

  • Christina Moneyhan

    Every state you mentioned with the exception of Texas are Democraticly controlled. Go figure.

  • it would be nice to know what each state provides for the taxes they collect.

  • You forgot Virginia. By the time you add in all other taxes & fees in Virginia you're getting screwed. They also steal from you through government crime & fraud.

  • Conmecticut is a dump

  • Owning property is not what it used to be.

  • Don’t complain if you keep voting left wing democrats you deserve what you get

  • It kind of doesn’t matter unless you look at the total tax picture by state. You need to balance out the various taxes that the states assess and see who comes in where.

  • New Jersey residents must have anuses super widened as big as semi exhausts by democrats and they must love their 2.44% property tax as not a single home owner complains – gluttons for taxsodomy πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Who else thought California would be #1?

  • Do any of these states also have a school property tax? Same as plain-old property tax, but it's strictly issued by and for school districts. And the people who "serve" on the school boards are typically "educators." Who would know better what should be done with a school district.

    In one county in Pennsylvania, which has standard rates for both vehicle registration and inspection, this one county decided to issue its very own vehicle registration fee. It's not a tax, it's a fee. There is no difference in meaning. Fee. Five bucks a year. The DOT offered to match funds for one year with any county that issued its own vehicle registration fee. The DOT said it and meant it, it would not match funds a second year.

    The one year matching funds thing is how local government introduced the fee. It also informed residents that it would continue the fee for a second year, now a third, no matter that there are no matching funds from the DOT. It's fee. The same county just recently issued a Rain Tax. No kidding. It's for the environment.

  • The story is always the same, the corruptocrats spend outside their means because it's other peoples money they can buy patronage with.

  • Stay out of the most SPRAYED STATE IN AMERICA!! ILLINOIS!!! WE NEVER SEE THE SKY,OR THE SUN ANYMORE!!NOT TO MENTION OUR MONEY!!

  • Property taxes?

    Why would you pay taxes in something you already own?
    The USA is weird.

  • A, for that people are nice to each other in Wisconsin, I. Can say , NOT TRUE😱

  • You. Missed. Minnesota. Worse than WI

  • New Jersey is also the number one state people are moving out off more then moving in.
