If your on the water it went up. Most homes off the water actually had a small decrease in tax.

High tax rates in nicer cities like Brick are a means of keeping the "undesirables" out. At the same time if there wasn't the high tax rate, a lot of that complained about it would be complaining about their city turning into another Newark. It's a double edged sword.

Are u serious with that comment.So the high tax rate in Newark and Jersey City are to keep the "undesirables" out. An affluent town like Bay Head has a very, very low tax rate. Undesirables welcome. Do you really,really think that the city planners sit down at a council meeting and say "Let's raise the tax rate to keep out undesirables". This mindset is truly disturbing.

Multiply your new assessment by 1.70. So if your home is assessed at 300K your new prop. tax will be $5,100.00. Hope that helps.

The majority of residents in both cities don't own property. And the high tax rates are likely a mere result of repaying the years of corruption and bankruptcy that have raped them both. And in years past, yes, that's how city planners thought. Have you ever heard of "redlining" or "urban renewal" movements?

The OP asked about tax rates and u answer the rates are high to keep undesirables out. I answered his question( I think). I'm aware of redlining. It was over 30 years ago and largely involved banks and insurers "redlining" less affluent or poorer areas. As far as urban renewal. Many cities would still be in the gutter without urban renewers trying to get the city out of the gutters. Start with 2 Hoboken and Jersey City now Newark. Is it right, it depends on who you ask. Is it legal, it sure is. I don't buy the conspiracy theory though. Thats my opinion and I guess yours is different. That's what makes the world go round.

I believe the rate information you want is found on the Ocean County page, here:

Welcome To Ocean County Tax Board's Website

For Brick Township it is showing a 2009 rate of 3.889. Doesn't show 2010 rates yet.

You can also easily look up your own tax records on the Brick Township web site, here: Tax Account Search
