Michigan is ranked 44th in the country when it comes to property taxes. Jill Gonzalez, with personal finance website Wallethub, says the average Michigan resident annually spends about $3,200 on property taxes.
“Michigan has always been an outlier as far as taxes are concerned. We typically see that a lot of times, especially in the mid-western states, it tends to be the highest. As we've said before, it really has a lot of tax rates that are competitive with coastal states.”
On average, the typical American household spends nearly $2,200 annually on property taxes. Michigan is also one of 27 states with vehicle property taxes, causing residents to shell out an additional $150 annually for owning a car.
