County Property Tax Summaries

The Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF) developed summaries to provide taxpayers information about property taxes in their counties. Each county summary provides a property tax breakdown and shows the shift of property tax burden between property classes. Additionally, the summaries break down where each property tax dollar goes, show a comparison of local spending by unit and list recent debt issued by unit. Finally, the summaries reveal how much local spending has changed over a 10-year period and compare it to the rate of inflation.

Summaries represent the best information available to the Department. Because some counties have not provided complete data to the Department, information in the summaries may vary.

2012 to current year Property Tax Summaries are now available on Gateway.
