What is relevant is not the residential tax rate but the average residential tax. I don't know where Milton is these days on that basis, but for many years it has been between thirtieth and 45th in the state, from the highest, with quite a large gap between Milton and the most expensive towns. You should look at that number in comparing these towns. It is available on the Department of Revenue web site.
