This seems to be a pretty shallow analysis of the tax rates. This doesn't take into account the actual housing stock or commercial tax base that is present. What is the residential property tax on the median home? What are people actually paying?

I don't mean to cut down Detroit, but how many of its 700,000 inhabitants are really paying property taxes on a $300,000 residence? To compare that to Honolulu, Boston & DC is more than inane & is borderline dishonest.
