I have a rental property in another state, does it matter if I file tax in that state after my filing my own?

I mean if I have to pay tax on my rental income in my home state,  and pay tax in the state where the property located? Doesn't that mean paying tax twice? Or do I need to file it at the property located state first? and then in my state? I am confused. Does it make any difference? Please explain clearly. thank you.
