Roseland
The house located at 10714 S. Layfayette Ave. in Roseland, currently offered for $80K, had a 2016 property tax bill of $1,935. | zillow.com

Property owners in Roseland/Pullman paid nearly 2.67% percent of the value of their homes in taxes last year. That’s 2.24 times the national average, according to an LGIS analysis of real estate sales data in Chicago’s South Side from Jan 1. to June 30.

Local Government Information Service (LGIS) publishes Chicago City Wire.

Roseland/Pullman, population 49,006, recorded a median sale price of $66,500 based on data from the 363 properties sold during the first half of 2018. In 2017, homeowners paid a median property tax bill of $1,776, according to county tax data from the Cook County Assessor’s Office.

That’s 2.67 percent of the community’s median home value. In the U.S., the average effective property tax rate is 1.19 percent.

Put another way: a $66,500 home in Indiana, where the effective rate is 0.89 percent, would have a property tax bill of about $592, or $1,184 less per year.

The analysis, including 44 Chicago South Side communities, shows homeowners in Englewood, Greater Grand Crossing, West Pullman, South Deering, and West Englewood pay the highest property taxes in the region, each clocking in with effective rates of 2.8 to 4.9 percent.

Illinois homeowners pay the second-highest property taxes in the country with an effective median rate of 2.32 percent, just behind those in New Jersey's (2.28 percent).
