CivicParent NJ Property Tax Viewer – 2019 Levies

Last month (October 2020) the state published the 2019 property tax tables. This is a “look back” at the local property tax landscape in New Jersey. It’s a wonderful treasure trove of public data from municipal, county, and local public school governments including:

  • Tax base data
  • Tax levy data
  • Tax rate data
  • Property appeals data
  • Property parcel data
  • and more.

What I’m sharing below is a basic view of the local levies for each municipality. As a recap:

  1. The city government (eg City Council) passes the municipal budget, and the municipal levy is part of that budget.
  2. The county government (Board of Freeholders) passes the county budget. The county levy is part of that budget. The county levy – once approved – is then apportioned out through the equalization process.
  3. The Board of Education passes the public schools budget, and the school levy is part of that budget.
