your question can have very misleading answers. the tax rates for different municipalities are based upon differing ratios depending upon how up to date the assessments are. One town with a very high rate may have very low assessment values. As to the amount of taxes levied I suggest you queery agents what taxes are in different towns for a certain price level home. There are towns like Princeton where you will not find a 4 bed 2 1/2 bath newer home for $300-$400K. Then you should look at the factors of school quality, resale value, commute, quality of life etc. You may find taxes are very low in areas you wouldnt want to live because they are too remote,too urban new,old, under power lines or adjacent to rail lines. I would ask you where do you want to live (based upon commute, features schools etc) and what is your budget including taxes. We agents may better assist with this information.

This article about 2015 property taxes in Bergen County addresses a lot of issues. http://activerain.com/blogsview/4830650/-which-areas-have-th…
It's important to look at the "Effective Tax Rate", not the general tax rate or average tax bill.

If you are interested in Bergen County I would say that Mahwah, Paramus and Wyckoff have very good taxes along with good schools.

Bedminster and Bridgewater have very low taxes. Both have great school systems.

Bedminster isn't even on the top 337 high schools list where you will find such gems as Camden and East Orange. "Great school systems" relative to what? Somalia? Bridgewater is pretty damn good, though.
