We're Number 44!

In median real estate taxes paid, that is, and that's a good thing. TaxProf Blog has the link and chart.

Still, real estate taxes don't tell the whole story. States like Florida and Texas, while not in the top 10, make up for it with higher sales tax and, in the case of Florida, tourism-related taxes. There are no free rides.

Even so, with other taxes factore in, I'd still be willing to claim that Oklahoma has one of the lowest tax burdens in the country. Not bad.

  1. No free rides though. The 'burden' is that you have to/get to live in Oklahoma... :)
