How many cars do I need to buy and pay taxes on to add up to 10K that I save on RE taxes.
Yes I know about the food and clothing taxes but 10K in savings on RE taxes will not get eaten up by other taxes.
Everyone who leaves NJ for NC should have calculated the tax differences and in most cases it is cheaper here.

Like CherryTwist stated, this property tax is due yearly.

I agree with that. We came down from Mass. 3 years ago. We thought we paid alot of taxes there. Nothing compared to what we pay here. Everytime you buy food or clothing, they tax it here. The only thing cheaper (although it is rising every year) are my property taxes. They have almost doubled since we moved in and will be close to what we paid up north within a few years.
