See How Your Local Property Taxes Compare

It’s a dubious honor but New Jersey has 11 of the nation’s 20 top property tax counties, according to a new study published by the Brookings Institution.

The study, which looks at average annual property taxes from 2007 through 2011, features an interactive tax map of the United States, facilitating a quick look at property taxes anywhere in the country.

Zoom in on New Jersey and you’ll be able to find the property tax rankings for your county by moving the cursor over it. The resulting pop-up box for Mercer County, for example, shows that it ranked 17th in the nation, with an average annual property tax bill of $6,514. Move the cursor over to Middlesex and you’ll find the 16th-ranked county, with an annual bill of $6,554. See where your county ranks.

According to the study, Bergen County leads the state and ranks third in the nation, with an average annual property tax bill of $8,893.

The map data also shows the average home value for each county as well as the percentage of average home value represented by the average annual property tax.

Does your property tax bill have you thinking about moving to another state?  Let your cursor do the walking to see what property tax bills look like elsewhere in the U.S.
