I have never gotten a "tax bill". My taxes are paid through my mortgage from the escrow account, so I guess the bill goes to Wells Fargo.

I wonder if I call the township if they will send me a copy.

I still get a copy even though I have it through my mortgage.

So in this post you say you agree it would most likely have a minimal impact on taxes to vote no for the budget.

Yet your premise for starting this thread is that obviously people don't want to lower their taxes or they would have voted down every school budget.

Hmm. I am going to call them, then. I've lived there since July, and I haven't gotten anything.

I just called. The town clerk says I don't get the tax bill because it goes to my mortgage company, but I can stop in any time from 9 to 5 Monday through Thursday and ask for a copy if I want one. LOL

That is response to a previous poster that implied that it's apparently not worth doing. My view is if the majority of people wanted to lower thier taxes the majority(by how much is unknown) would have voted the budgets down. The majority has spoken. 80 percent passed. So the majority is OK with the school budgets OR they would have voted them down.

I'm confused. Poster said it wouldn't have much impact on taxes. It seems to me you agreed. So do you agree or disagree that voting no on a budget would most likely have an impact on taxes?

voting no may have a minimal impact on the taxes, but voting Yes for an increase in school budget would seemingly imply that the voter is OK with their school taxes increasing. isn't that pretty straightforward?

If you vote NO. It will have an impact on your taxes, how much is undetermined. That means they will have to lower the school budget. I vote all the time, and often(I'm from Jersey City and dead).
