Re: Jersey City mayor-elect orders end to citywide reval

Not too shy to talk


Received pamphlets from city hall in yesterday's mail (see links below). Looks like another amateur hour to me.

After almost 4 years of delays and delaying, they stuff an envelope. 3 different papers and paper stock. tri-fold and letter size. (and politically correct a Spanish language cover letter!) and still don't answer questions:

* on what date will the inspectors start their physical inspections?
* on what date are the physical inspections scheduled to be completed?
* wasn't it possible to include a mock-up ID card? Folks are terrified to open doors to strangers (see PSE&G scams).... how difficult can it be to show a sample?

It it very realistic to assume that this process will drag on for a long, long time (obviously past the municipal elections in Nov.);

the next 4 quarterly bills are already online. find yours here:
http://taxes.cityofjerseycity.com/

i checked and mine went up 2.85% (sum of last 4 quarters vs. sum of next 4 quarters). not sure why the headline is "no increase", can someone enlighten us (municipal vs. county/school)???

impossible. 2 years seems to be realistic time frame to do the actual appraisal. city will ask and get extension(s).

How difficult can it be to be transparent? Let's take a look at how it's done in other parts of the country. Here's an example from Florida:

http://www.co.palm-beach.fl.us/papa/A ... parcel=52424135040280020&

If you scroll down you'll see an "appraisal" section but also a link to "structural details". Clicking on "tax details" shows you where your money is being spent.

Wow!!! They are light years ahead in sleepy FL but in fancy, cocky North-East that's too much to ask for? Please....

Yes, saw them too: actually 2 planes with 3 banners: 2 x what looked like Turkish flag and sandwiched in between a "GET REAL". you could be right and it's about the Armenian genocide.

Please see the following 2 sample properties and draw your own conclusions and opinions about what's fair and what's not. Seeing these figures, I can certainly understand the anger and disappointment shown in the Jersey City Together video

Sample 1:
212 8th St., Downtown:
2-family brick row house, 3 stories + basement.
sold in Aug. 2015 to our Australian friends (Dixon) for $1,420,000. I've seen the inside when it was listed, no upgrades or renovations (dixon buys to renovate)
taxes: 11,522
effective tax rate: 0.811%
http://tax1.co.monmouth.nj.us/cgi-bin ... 610105____00024_________M


Sample 2:
224 Neptune Ave., Greenville (off Kennedy, not too bad):
single family on 12.45x100
sold in 2011 for $161,000
taxes: $5,013
effective tax rate: 3.114%

As a reminder and to clarify the 'effective rates' see
http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/lpt/taxrate.shtml
and click "Hudson County".

yes, in theory it's a zero sum result. however, what we, the uneducated property taxpayers, don't know is if and what such reval will trigger on county or state level!? if aid/grants decrease as a result of reval, then the total tax burden in absolute $$ terms will go up...

then learn your lessons: don't live (or don't have anyone else live) in a basement/ below grade in downtown jersey city or hoboken. don't complain about destroyed living spaces in basements; they were never meant to be living spaces!!! after 2 storms i don't pity anyone getting flooded.

Bergen-Lafayette is mostly viewed as 07304 zip code:

some of the worst areas (Bergen Ave. @ Lexington) are part of it...

we tried it. great food, great experience. worth its price but it's not a restaurant anyways. i actually loved the fact it's outside downtown and commend the owners for trying a business venture like this.
