For most of these towns, there are some pretty sizable factors that keep taxes low, but are largely irrelevant for the rest of NJ. From the Star Ledger:
Last week we sorted through New Jersey’s latest property tax data to show you the 30 towns with the highest average property tax bills. Here, we look at the 30 towns with the lowest average property tax bills.
Of course, average property tax bills are just one way to compare municipalities’ property tax burdens. Unlike the tax rate, the average tax bills also factors in property values. But it gives you a good idea of what people are really paying.
The average homeowners in all of these towns are paying well below the state average, $8,690.
There are a couple of new municipalities on this year’s list. Vineland and West Wildwood dropped of the lowest property tax list this time.
