DALLAS – North Texas homeowners had the fourth highest residential property tax totals in the country last year.
The area's total home tax take topped $10 billion in 2017, according to a just-released estimate from Attom Data Solutions.
While average nationwide property tax bills rose 3 percent in 2017, the average house tax bill rose 11 percent year over year in Dallas-Fort Worth. That's one of the largest gains in the country.
Only New York ($31.3 billion), Chicago ($12.7 billion), and Los Angeles ($11.9 billion) residents were hit with higher total tax bills. Houston was fifth on the list with $9.9 billion paid to the tax man.
Nationwide, over $293 billion in property taxes were levied on single-family homes last year, says Attom Data.
