Property Taxes by NY 23rd Counties

While researching for the Tax Cap article, I ran across the Reforming New York website.  It has an interactive map comparing the Median Property Tax, and Median

home-loan-for-property-taxes-resized-600.jpgHome Value for each county in New York State. It also compares the amount of taxes paid to the total home value, and states that data in a percent.  I have reproduced the data for the counties in the NY23rd. Schuyler County’s data was un available. The data source: “The Tax Foundation, based on a three-year average and out of 1,824 counties nationwide.” although it doesn’t state which years the data represents.

Please note that Allegany County had the lowest Median Property Tax paid on homes in the NY 23rd, and the lowest Median Home Value. That makes sense. It also has the HIGHEST Taxes to Home Value percentage.

A word about Yates County. We have been known as being a people-poor/land-rich county. There are three Finger Lakes partially in Yates County–the main one is Keuka, which is part in Steuben County. The others are Seneca and Canandaigua Lakes. These lake properties, and Yates County valuable farm land (including Vineyards) skews the its data.

    Thanks for putting all this information together. Note that the data refers to median, not medium taxes and values.


  2. John Hunter says:

    To better understand the data, the median incomes for the NY23rd should be includfed as well. This will make the contrast between Yates and other counties clearer.

    The more affluent counties have more per residence to spend. I wonder what they do with it and what the less affluent counties do without?
