Taxes: Our ranking is based on the median average ratio of annual property taxes as a percent of the home value for all homes sold in this town during the calendar year. For example, if a home is sold for $500,000 and it has annual property taxes of $5,000 then it has an effective property tax rate of 1.0% (i.e., $5,000 divided by $500,000). We calculate the median effective property tax rate for each town based on a list of all property sales transactions during the calendar year. The town ranked number one above has the lowest level of property taxes of all ranked towns.
