Corzine’s New Jersey tops list – picks your pocket

Discouraging article in NJ.com today.

New Jersey homeowners put 7 percent of their paychecks toward property taxes in 2008 — the highest in the country, a tax group said yesterday.

The state, with the highest property taxes in the nation, is home to six of the nation’s 10 most expensive counties, according to the Tax Foundation, a nonprofit group that analyzed Census data released this week. But last year was better for New Jersey than 2007, when the state claimed seven of the top 10 spots.

Ranked by state, New Jersey takes the top spot with a median property tax bill of $6,320.

Thanks Jon. You promised to reduce property taxes and all you have done is increase EVERY OTHER tax, add NEW TAXES, increase FEES, and then you fail to hold our school boards responsible to cut frivolous spending.
