U.S. Cities with More Than $10,000 in Property Tax Deductions

We utilized data from the IRS SOI (Statements of Income) files for returns filed January 1 – December 31, 2016. The data contain the total number of filings and total dollar amount for a wide range of tax items.

For the property tax deduction, we calculated the average amount for returns claiming a deduction for each city. This was our ranking criteria. We also show the returns from that city claiming the deduction as a % of total returns. Our results only show those cities where the average property tax deduction is $10,000 or more for cities with 25,000 or more residents.
