The report, titled "Comparing the Real Cost of Home Ownership Across the United States", calculates that the average property tax rate in the U.S. is 1.31 percent of value, but northeastern states have a higher rate with southern states generally requiring less.
The highest rate in the country is the state of Illinois. There, homeowners pay 2.67 percent of the value of their homes in property tax each year, followed by New York State at 2.53.
In New England, New Hampshire leads the pack at 2.43 percent, owing perhaps to the lack of a state sales tax there. Connecticut follows at 2.10, Vermont is next at 1.98. Rhode Island stands at 1.93. Massachusetts and Maine tie at 1.47 percent.
