This is why so many people are in debt.

And doesn’t proximity to schools increase property value? So why does a school have to pay a higher tax because of proximity to itself?

couldn’t agree more, most of the states with the highest levels also have relatively high property values and taxes. I would be interested to know how Iowa made it to #2 though.

Another factor for Georgetown students is the amount of financial aid it can fund through its limited endowment.

The higher cost due to being in close proximity to the capital, etc. and having relatively safe areas is what causes the land tax to be higher, and thus the student has to pay for it.
