You are obviously incredibly smart since you know about the "climate change" scam. Can you please enlighten us that aren't aware what that is?

Yep, the same Democrats that keep taking us out of recessions created by Republicans.

The same Democrats who opposed the tax cuts put in place by the current administration, those tax cuts that limited your state and local tax write-offs. Those same tax cuts that cut taxes for billionaires and corporations, but actually wound up costing us in the middle class...


I'll take this post down if you take yours down.

When will people realize this is because NIMBY idiots that don’t understand a thing about economics keep railing against density and commercial space?

I asked that question at the August 14th council meeting and the administration said it would arrive either Friday or Monday.

I agree with Yvonne, it's not about the rate it's the absurd assessment that hurts, although we here in the Heights section have been over charged for years now.


It's not absurd if someone is willing to pay it. And currently, there are many people willing to pay it.

Hell yes.

As should already be obvious, I have zero sympathy for anyone who thinks they are entitled to a continued massive tax break -- at someone else's expense -- because they took advantage of the city's refusal to perform its obligations and perform regular revals.

So yes, they should be glad that even with the tax increase, they are paying less than most NJ residents, and that the value of their homes has grown significantly over the years.

One of the local civic blogs. I can't remember which.

I'm really debating whether Yvonne is really this obtuse or if it's an act.

Either way. The party is over, dear.

Actually, I do not believe the nonsense that downtown was paying less than other parts of JC. It really depends on what part of downtown you are talking about. JC Together pointed to the Village, not to Van Vorst or even Paulus Hook. Long before the reval, parts of Van Vorst were paying $16,000 to $20,000 and there is a home in Paulus Hook that was condo, it was the former Joe Duffy home, that paid a total of $48,000 for the three condos in a what was a private one family home when Joe Duffy lived there. JC Together cherry picked for their story that downtown is being subsidized by Ward F. By the way, public housing projects have stopped paying even their pilot agreement to JC since the 1960s yet other towns have their public housing paying their pilots agreements. There is a clause in JC Public Housing that their pay their utilities out of the 10% to the city. Utilities eat up the 10%. Even the late mayor Glenn Cunningham thought that was wrong and tried to get $100,000 from them but he passed away before anything happened. But no one one talks about the fact public housing pays zero to JC since the 1960s.

Yes, and in the knowledge they've saved tens and tens of thousands of dollars by not paying their fair share while the poor homeowners in Greenville, Society Hill, and other areas have been carrying them.


...And they can now sell their homes at a massive profit - or tap into the substantial equity that they've amassed on the backs of non-downtown taxpayers for all the years they've lived here! Bonus!

Mark my words, those taxes will see another substantial increase within the next 5 years (10, at the latest) once the state tweaks the school funding formulas and JC is asked/forced to shoulder a larger part of the local BOE budget. There is no way we get away with paying ~17% of the local school budget for much longer. Even at a paltry third (33%) we would be underpaying, but taxes would go up 25% for every homeowner based on the doubling of the current ~0.4% school levy.

Many people here have stated our school rate is low, they are correct but towns who pay nearly 100% of their school rate have very low municipal rates to pay. Their money goes to schools and county government with a sliver to the municipal government. In JC, more than 50% of our taxes go to municipal government. In order to be equal to those towns that pay more to the school system, then our municipal government needs to to eliminated.

Its irrelevant because market values are high due to JC's proximity to NYC. So naturally with high property values comes low tax rates. Just as if the reval was done in 2009 then the rate would have been much higher.


Partly right, partly wrong. Higher real estate values do help keep down the tax rate, but our local tax rate is lower mostly for other reason.

Our school levy is only ~25% of the total tax rate, amounting to about .40%, and that only covers 17% of the local BOE budget. If the current school funding setup is modified, and we are suddenly asked to shoulder a higher percentage of the local BOE budget, we will see our local rate go up quite a bit. If we were asked to shoulder 33% of the local BOE budget, our new property tax rate would be a little over 2%, and if we were asked to cover half of the local school budget the overall tax rate would be a hair short of 2.5%. Our local tax rate is low not because of high property value, but because the local school budget is being paid by someone else.
