Even after Prop 13, California is in the top 10 in median real estate taxes paid ($2,510).
The Tax Foundation's research section is fun to browse. I found this report, comparing state spending with federal money inflow:
How is New Mexico getting twice as much back as it's paying to D.C.? Also, I assumed California (#43) was getting the worst shake of all, but New Jersey, Nevada, and Connecticut are getting the least back from D.C. relative to the taxes they've paid to D.C. The only state with nothing to complain about? Rhode Island, which pays out a buck and got a buck back from the feds.
