Real Estate Taxes - Where Does YOUR State Rank?
Click on any state on the map. The smaller the number, the lower the property tax is in that state. Bottom Line: New Jersey has the HIGHEST property taxes in the nation, by far!
Ranked #51, New Jersey's taxes are higher than 49 other states and the District of Columbia. What's more, New Jersey's effective property tax rate is ALSO the highest!
Why has New Jersey's state legislature taken NO action to reduce property taxes and why do they keep taxing and spending and raising our state debt?
The facts speak for themselves: New Jersey has been poorly served by our public officials in Trenton -- especially our DEMOCRAT-controlled legislature.
