Carat98, welcome back! I also love NJ. But have to admit the property taxes (and winters) are killing me. Would you mind saying where you GA you lived and why you didn't like it? thanks!

All I am saying is that infrastructure can be improved without increasing local property taxes.
a lot! <need more text>

Your taxes went down Tahiti? If so, then congratulations to you. You know, if you are forceful without being bellicose, it's amazing how you can persuasively argue for a lower rate. I'd imagine you went this route, and used square footage discrepancy as a point of protest? Also, some places give you head of household and/or military veterans exemptions.

Esp., the Northeast mountains, imo.

Three of the reasons I moved:
1. Family and friends;
2. The oppressive heat in the summer; and last but not least,
3. The horrid traffic jams on 400 - no better than N.J. really. IMO, worse.

thanks for the responses. I visited the Atlanta area a few weeks ago and liked it, but living there is a different story. I have friends that moved there from NJ and so far, they love it.

No, not me unfortunately. I live in a new house, so I have no recourse in fighting my taxes (actually, we have one of the lowest bills in the development, so my neighbors can use *us* to fight their bills). However, I do know of people and towns who have lowered rates once in awhile.

i've been on 400 several times, and you're right, it's a nightmare (going to Alpharetta and Suwanee). It's equivalent to Rt 80 near the GWB at rush.
