Does it make sense for empty-nesters to move to this part of Clifton or are you being overly -penalized with prop taxes?

New Jersey has High tax rates You being from NY also have them there as you realize I'm sure.
Clifton's effective tax rate for 2012 is $2.647. This means if a house and property is valued at $100,000
then the taxes paid would be $2,467. you can figure it out what the taxes would be on most homes using that number as the multiplier. This gives you a close idea what taxes should be but it is not an exact science. To view all the Towns and counties in NJ here is a helpful link from the State .

New Jersey property taxes are up there among the highest. Clifton taxes are lower than some of the surrounding towns and higher than a few others in this NE section of NJ. Clifton is a large city with many different sections. Which section are you considering? Are you thinking of an adult community, a condo/townhouse complex or a small house? What draws you to Clifton? What other areas might you consider?
As you can see, it looks like you should schedule an appointment with a good realtor to go over how you can make the best move for you.

Hi

You must have some Ties to want to be in Clifton. There are a few surrounding towns with lower taxes. What ever the reason meet with Lilla, she has over 15 years experience in the Clifton Area.
