2010 Property Tax Rate Comparison

So often I hear folks make comments like "the tax rates are so much higher in the Park Cities" or "the taxes are higher if you're in Plano". Well the tax rates are actually higher in places like Lancaster and Grand Prairie. It's the land values that are higher in some areas, not the tax rates.
See for yourself here (click on the image to enlarge it):

Interesting to note are the city Homestead Exemptions as well. It varies by area. Typically the exemption is 20%, however it's only 5% in Coppell, 8% in Garland, 1% in Grand Prairie and 1% in Rowlett.  [where: 75230]
