Hi all, Im originally from NJ, and I have been wanting to move back there in the future.
I know the taxes are high in NJ, but by what amount? 10k a year? 6k a year?
Can someone give me an idea about how much people are paying total? (Northern NJ: Bergen, Essex, Passaic?)
And are there any areas still affordable in Northern NJ as far as taxes go?
Thanks for the help!

Obviously, this depends on the value of the property, but I have a friend in Mercer County, near Princeton - and he'd be DELIGHTED to only pay 10K. And I think Bergen County might be even more pricey.

You can't even go by county. I lived in Bergen Cty. in Saddle Brook, I paid $5200 per year, which is considered low for Bergen Cty.

I think there is a website that lists each town and the taxes. If I can find it I will post it.

Depends on the area, depends on the value of your home. If you don't want to pay a lot on taxes move to a city like Camden, Newark or Jersey City. But if you want to raise a family and stay safe then you're going to have to pay.




VOTE THEM ALL OUT.

Depends on town. If there's a lot of industry in the town, the taxes are usually less. For example, Roseland taxes are much less than Montclair, both in Essex county.

Here's the link State of New Jersey Division of Taxation (http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/index.html - broken link)

I think the median for most of New Jersey is in the $7,500 range (which is about what I pay).
