-707th in how much we paid in property taxes, a median of $1,349
-462rd on how much we paid as a percent of home value (the median was $109,500), 1.2 percent
-823rd in how much we paid as a percent of median family income (the median was $59,678), 2.2 percent
The lower the rank, the higher the tax burden. 19 of the 20 most expensive counties were in New York and the least expensive were all in Louisiana.
