From the Star Ledger:
New Jerseyans are accustomed to high property taxes, and they’re accustomed to those tax bills getting bigger year after year.
The state’s average residential property tax bill climbed from $8,549 in 2016 to $8,690 in 2017.
But not everyone saw a tax hike last year.
In fact, 67 of New Jersey’s 565 townships, villages, boroughs and cities, and 67 actually posted a smaller average residential property tax bill in 2017.
There are probably 67 different reasons for why property taxes were lower in these 67 municipalities. We explain the ones with biggest cuts.
The reductions ranged from a few pennies to thousands of dollars.
Eleven of these towns saw reductions of more than $500.
