Property taxes are a key factor for homebuyers when deciding if, and where, they want to buy a home. The average American household spends $2,127 annually on property taxes, according to an article by John Kiernan for WalletHub.

Each year, about $11.8 billion property taxes go unpaid, according to the article. Although not everyone owns a home,  property taxes can also affect the prices to rent.

Among some of the highest tax rates are New Jersey with 2.29%, Illinois with 2.25% and New Hampshire with 2.1%. Check article for the full list.
