PROPERTY TAXES

Tax Book


About one third of the City's annual budget is funded through property taxes.  Property taxes are calculated based on the total assessed value of the property (land value + improvements value - exemptions) divided by $100 and multiplied by the tax rate. The assessed value is determined by the Tax Assessor.  The tax rate is set and certified by the Hudson County Board of Taxation.
