Isn't that Nebraska for South Carolina which is even stranger. {#Lol}  Ok I can see the subtle shades of purple and it appears it is Ohio.  I am from South Carolina and I don't get the Ohio  either, I thought we would have completed the clean sweep of Florida.

I don't see it that way at all. Sure, NY and CA have high tax rates, but the important thing is how equitable they are. In Texas for example, property taxes and sales tax substitute for income tax. Sales taxes are notoriously regressive, although Texas includes a number of non-taxed items like staple foods.

Property taxes in Texas are unrelated to the property owners' ability to pay. That's the crux of the problem. Certainly a big part of why we're #2 in taxation inequity.

Families are being forced out of their homes because they cannot pay their ever-increasing property taxes. Wages are stagnant or slow-growing, but property taxes go up every year. You're supposed to sell and move? To where? Housing costs are skyrocketing, with no end in sight. People on fixed incomes, what are they supposed to do? Get a job? Many are retired or disabled, unable to work. Their house is often their only asset, but the State takes a larger and larger chunk of their meager income every year. Renters do not escape the bind either, because landlords pass along their tax burden to them.

Texas has always been proud of its no-income-tax status, but that hubris has come around in a cruel way, constantly squeezing people more and more. Which puts more strain on social services, which are funded by property taxes...

If you make a lot of money, you should pay a fair percentage in taxes. If you don't make much money, or are dependent on the government (retired, disabled), you shouldn't pay as high a percentage. But property taxes DON'T CARE how much money you make. They demand more and more every year. It's grossly unfair, as the handy chart suggests.

got ur point, Tx is less equitable. NY and Ca less so, but still worse than average across the board.  
The median home value on long island is about $375k, with very few options below $250k. For the median home, you're also paying about $9-$10k in property taxes, sales tax close to 9% and income tax from 4%-8.8%.  CA is worse from an income tax and ownership perspective...higher real estate prices. But they seem to have more affordable rental options.

Not sure why certain states have "no data" showing.  NC is 2.935% according to my calculations from their State Agricultural Overview.
