States Without Property Tax

Property taxes are taxes levied on real property – meaning land and buildings, both commercial and residential – or personal property – meaning business equipment, inventories, and noncommercial motor vehicles – that is located within a specific jurisdiction. They are calculated by multiplying the market value of the property by a property tax rate. More specifically, tax on real property is primarily levied by localities, while tax on personal property is usually levied by states. It is for this reason that property taxes are often a small source of revenue for states. 

States and localities typically use property taxes to fund infrastructure, public education, water and sewer improvements, and other services. While every state has a property tax, each state may have different property tax rates. Those with a lower property tax will have increased taxes elsewhere, usually either as a higher sales tax or personal income tax.
