With the 2018 tax filing season now behind us, we decided to follow up on our previous list of top 100 property taxes in the U.S. We once again turned to public record sources, aiming to see if any year-over-year difference in taxes tipped the scales for some of the properties included in our prior lineup, as well as to check whether there were any new entries or contenders for the top spots.
At first glance, the list does not look all that different. The 100 top taxpaying properties in 2017 are scattered across the same nine states, and not much has changed with respect to the overwhelming New York presence in the mix—78 of the top 100 U.S. taxes are for properties located in New York state. In 2017, they generated $2.2 billion in property tax revenue, accounting for 82% of the total contributed by all 100. The mix of property types should also be no surprise by now—our list features mostly office properties, sprinkled with mixed-use, retail, hotel, entertainment, and residential properties.
Take a look at the 10 Illinois properties that made the list.
