Default Happy to report (Taxes)

Our town just posted the budget and like last year there will be ZERO tax increase, we are also running a surplus of 3.25 mil. When you take into account that my town has one of the more reasonable taxes in the metropolitan area I'm very happy with our elected officers.

The pols in my town keep saying we have a low millage rate. I think taxes paid per household is a better way of tracking taxes. We have high assessments so the millage rate stays low. but I probably pay more tax for an equally assessed house than some other towns.

I'm looking at about $250 right now... and that is just the schools.


Secaucus has industry, I have woods and water. It's either state park or Newark watershed.

Our taxes keep going up so the people that live in Cary and now Raleigh are succeeding in making this place just like the northeast from which they fled.

Good to hear but it's still more important how they spend it.

About 17K now. Small town/city, a few miles from both Lincoln and Holland tunnels, cities all around us but we remain small and community orientated.

Sure industry is what helps keep our taxes low, but it's compartmentalized in one part of town, residential is in another part of town as is entertainment and dining in yet another, the town was well planned out IMO.
We don't have woods with the exception of one small park called "Schmitt's woods" but we do have 2 boat ramps to get us onto the water.

IMO they spend it well, very community feel, lots of family activities, plow, garbage, schools etc are fine. Mayor is always on call so to speak, councilman's door is always open

Our taxes in Pompano went down a little last year! Not a lot ($100), but certainly better than going up.
My assessment went up a bit too.

You haven't actually used those ramps to get into the Hackensack river....right ????
I do remember seeing a guy ROWING his canoe down there one day.

I've not but have seen others use them, the one closest to me (1/2 mile away) you need to pay attention to tides if you have anything bigger then a jon boat, but if you use the newer ramp by "Exchange place" I think your good anytime. Seen some pretty fair size boat go in and out there.

If our shore house sells I may wind up getting something small to use on the Hack.

Yup!

My value went up and my taxes went down.

When I lived in NJ we had 3 years in a row where taxes went up between 8-15% EACH YEAR.
