Have been doing some research on orange and rockland counties...specifically the monroe school district area. I am really surprised to find that the taxes are higher in some subdivisions than dutchess county.

I would think with the woodbury commons, there is plenty of revenue generation to offset the tax issue. Over here, I see people pay an average of 8-12 in taxes, but I have 14k and up in orange.

What gives? Its over the bridge and not has convenient for the NYC worker as you are on the "other side of the river"

Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.

Taxes on both sides will be catching up. There are quite a few towns/villages now in Dutchess going through a complete reassessment through MJW. Some of the taxes are going through the roof. My own assessment went up 275,000. My neighbors went up closer to $300,000.-and we don't live in McMansions, just cape cod style homes.

I think you'll see that taxes in the next 5 years will be as high as Rockland or Westchester on both sides of the river. Home prices in Dutchess may have leveled a bit-but southern Dutchess your still looking at about $400,000 for a resale-and many of them are raised ranches(cookie cutter homes). If you want to escape higher taxes, you'll have to set your eyes to counties north of both-but it'll get there soon too. You've got the Albany area trickling down and west bound to get away from higher taxes. Columbia and Ulster/Green will be going up too as more people move there.
