New York State is one of the most prestigious states in America and living in the Great State of New York has many good things that come along with it.

However, not everything about living in the Empire State is great.

New York routinely ranks among states with the highest income and property taxes in the country. One of the primary reasons people cite for moving away from New York is the very high tax burden that people have to pay.

However, that tax burden isn't equally shared among the residents of the state. Some areas of New York have pretty low taxes relatively, while taxes in other areas' are seemingly astronomical.

Recently the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance released a list of the overall property tax rates for the 62 counties that are in New York.

Here are the 5 Counties that have the highest average property tax rates in New York.
