Yes the taxes are $9213.00 per year. The rate is over $3.00 per $1000.00 whihc generally indicates there is going to be a townwide re-evaluation sometime in the near future. What we are seeing is homeowners going for tax appeals on homes that the hoeowner believe to be over assessed. This is an option for you. The appeal has to be filed with the town/coiunty usually by April. The period to begin an appeal generally starts in February after the tax bils are received. You can have a realtor run comparables for you to tax to the appeal which is usually done in June-August. Or if you would like you can hire a local real estate appraiser who can do an appeal appraisal on the property and take that and the appraiser to the hearing to have the taxes reduced. There is a website that you can refer to anytime you are seeking information on properties in NJ will give you tax infomation on any property. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact me. The CMA for tax appeal purposes is a FREE service any realtor can rpovide to you.

OK, I am assuming you mean that Trulia is listing the taxes as $4,611 and then has 2010 listed after it. That is a good question. I don't know why they did that. Unfortunately, as Realtors, we do not enter that information so it is coming from their site. The assessments are correct but the tax amount is not. I agree that it is very misleading. You might get more accurate information at other sites. Feel free to visit my website, or the website. Those sites pull information directly from the Garden State MLS and tax records. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 201-214-8400 and I would be happy to answer them for you.
