A recent study by financial technology company SmartAsset finds the places in Oregon where residents receive the most value for what they pay in property taxes. First, the study measures the effective property tax paid in each county to determine the relative property tax burden. From there, the study analyzes the quality of public schools within the county. Finally, it measures how much value properties in the county have gained throughout a five year period.
Taken together, these factors determine where residents are seeing the most value for their property taxes. For a look at the top performing counties in Oregon, check out the table below.
