Another entry for the JC Property Tax Hall of Shame:

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/243 ... y-NJ-07302/38888495_zpid/

243 2nd St -
Asking Price: 1.75 MM
Taxes (2015): 10.6 K (a whopping 0.6%)

If we end up at a 2% rate, the new taxes would be 35K. Even if we end up with a 1.8% rate, this property will pay 31.5K. I wonder if the seller, or their agent, will disclose that to potential buyers.

Tell me again how this reval is not overdue?

If they have to be told then they should continue to rent.


That's total BS, Heights. Full disclosure of critical matters related to a property sale should be legally required. Lots of buyers are gobbling up DTJC properties seemingly unaware of the impending reval. How's someone supposed to know about the reval process and the potential for a doubling or tripling of the advertised taxes.


The joke is that any property on a 25x100 lot should have to pay $35k in taxes. Let alone one in a city loaded with business and industry that should offset property taxes. Then again I guess Steve will need to cover the estimated $9.6 million lost in federal aid.

Why not try Bayonne. It is much safer and would have the same commute.

Why must people constantly whine and nitpick? Big deal now you have some extra supplies and probably got to work from home. Boo hoo. And as drifterx pointed out the over prediction probably saved lives.

While I think the SciTech idea is downright silly, your claim about that plot of land being "very valuable" is almost as goofy. It is contaminated marsh land, sandwiched between an industrial service road and the turnpike extension, and during most of the year it stinks terribly.





The land has value. The city should be compensated for it. The tax payers should not be free bring this project. Maybe they can rent the land.

That's a silly argument as cityhall allowed this proximity to occur; planning zones of businesses with a 'night club' element next door to residents.
Cityhall must take ownership for this problem and either they should of had an 'entertainment precinct' void of residents or introduced conditions for late night liquor licences so at not to cause an anti-social element to residents - Blame lays with city planners. It should be noted that restuarants in general, don't cause issues, but when a so-called 'restaurant' operates like a bar and its sole purpose is to sell beer and it targets patrons from a younger demographic, then that's a different story !


Newark Ave has always had bars and restaurants on it. It has always been commercial. This is nothing new. As I stated before the restaurants and bars have increased property values. If you don't like the bustle sell to someone that does

You make a good point -- especially with bars that have endless issues.

Those bars and restaurants have raised property values. If you don't like them cash out and move

We have our own oil. Wasn't the criticism of the Iraq was that it was done to seize control of oil?

I don't think it's necessarily oil, either.

But surely there's a reason why we support an authoritarian regime that sponsors Islamic terrorism. 79% of the 9/11 Bombers were from Saudi Arabia. Should we ban them? Nah

The fact that Iran is on the list and Saudi Arabia isn't is a complete joke.

Hopefully Trump will see it that way.

He isn't that stupid. Thin skinned maybe but not stupid. He won the election on a slanted field. I bet there is truth to this. Whether he can prove it is another matter. Obama's own website indicates he is raising money to fund Trump protesting groups. Is it so inconceivable that he would wire tap? Something is leaking and based on the response from the press and then left on his appointments I doubt it's any of his cabinet.

Not too many people swoon for Trump. The media may lead you to believe that. Trump is the creation of the left and he would have never stood a chance if the field had not been slanted for Hillary to win the nomination.

i hear nothing of all these new developments with an allowance for this, but where are the displaced tenants of all the projects that are being torn down?


Yes many of the new buildings have a low income portion to them. This makes the Dems happy as they can appear to be helping the poor while they find homes for those politically connected

AND. SO. WHAT? But I'm feeling generous so I'll explain AGAIN.

They put down no more than $17k and made $983,000!! YAY!!! More money than they ever dreamed of, and as you say, they didn't do anything for it!

Now they're being asked to pay 2%, $20k, to stay in their house. Lets say it ultimately costs $5k a year for the reverse mortgage, which is an absurdly high guess. Now they've got to pay $25k, 2.5%, per year out of their equity. Is there anyone who doesn't believe that a DT property will increase by more than that 2.5% on average over the next decade or 2? Remember how fast it recovered even after the 2008 drop? So our modest millionaires can continue to live in their house, and benefit from any gains over 2.5 for as long as they like.

But wait, what's that? A black Swan!! Property drops 30%! It makes no difference to them. After all, all they wanted was to stay in their house and they've still got plenty of equity to pay taxes. Oh, you say what they really wanted was to stay in their house, pay low taxes, and leave the equity untouched to their kids? Tough shit. That party is ending.

Presuming they aren't morons, take a lump sum reverse mortgage and blow it in Vegas on slots, coke and hookers there's no need to feel sorry for them, they're winners!!


So you are advocating that people take out a reverse mortgage to pay their taxes. It's a good thing you are not a financial planner

That question should been asked by Clinton on what she means by bias. I saw the video when she was speaking. I feel the media was covering up for her. I had no problem with them attacking Trump, so yes, the media does have a bias.

More like residents will be flooding the tax office with appeals. A better approach would be anticipating this and not using just recent sale prices as the sole basis

But that has been discussed before. The point of reviving this thread was to see if anyone had any info on the he current status of the process.

To you point Ralph a condo living downtowner paying 10k on a 800k property probably "consumes" less resources then someone in Greenville on a 25x100 lot paying 6k in taxes
