Residents in these states paid some of the lowest property tax bills in the nation, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they paid the lowest tax rates. That’s largely because a property’s taxable value has a significant impact on the dollar amount of your tax bill. So, living in an area where home prices are lower often translates to paying less property taxes. 

Property tax breaks offered by each state can also affect how high your tax bill is. And while you can find property tax breaks in all states, some are worth more than others.
