Real Estate Property Tax Report

Real Estate Property Tax Report

South Dakota on the higher end in real estate property tax report


News Release from Wallet Hub - February 25, 2020

UNDATED - Each year, the average American household spends $2,375 on real-estate property taxes plus another $441 for residents of the 27 states with vehicle property taxes. With such high costs, it’s no surprise that more than $14 billion in property taxes go unpaid each year, according to the National Tax Lien Association. 

In order to determine who pays the most relative to their state, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its 2020 Property Taxes by State report as well as accompanying videos, which compares home and vehicle taxes across the nation and features insights from a panel of experts.

South Dakota ranks 35th, where its effective real estate tax rate is 1.32-percent. South Dakota's real estate tax is $2,706 -- compared to the nation's lowerst -- $560 in Hawaii.
