The municipal portion increased 8.99% and the school portion increased 7.07%. The county increased 1.75%. The other portions were basically flat. I am in a republican town.

Mine went down, not much, but it didn't go up like it has in the past every year. This scares me for next year's taxes; this is too good to be true.

When we bought our house, the taxes were $3408 . It was assessed at $229,000 . We had an appraisal done and it was appraised for $175,000 . The tax assessor lowered it for us to the appraised price. It went down to $2700 for the year 2010. We got our new tax bill in the mail a few weeks back and it was $488.00 for a quarter which would come out to $1952 for the year. Not a bad deal although it says it was an estimated tax bill because ocean county had not finalized a tax rate

About 6% give or take. Too much, again.

Mine went up less than .5% and all of the increase was at the county level. This is the third year my municipal taxes haven't gone up a penny and my school taxes were flat this year after a 2% increase last year.

I am just wondering why the property tax for some people can go down? How this happen in NJ?? When we bought our condo in 2005, the tax was 3800 and now is slightly over 6000. Jersey City property tax is unbelievable, and most of schools are still crappy there.

The taxes in most towns are not going down, its people appealing their assessment. A house three or four years ago is not worth as much today. Why should people pay taxes on that old value.
