Re:  A Short and Simple Glimpse at the Property Tax in New Jersey

Dear Mayor:

We wanted to remind you of the availability of our 2010 special report explaining why property taxes in New Jersey are so high!  I invite you to share this brochure with others in your administration and with your taxpayers. 

We are hopeful that this overview of the situation will help you to better participate in the debate over this critical issue. As you are well aware, rising property taxes are a major factor in driving people away from New Jersey. The time has come to lower these regressive taxes with the help of state officials.

Again, thank you for taking the time to familiarize yourself with the history of the debate and the steps your League is currently taking to bring about property tax reform.   Further details on our advocacy efforts can be found on our home page (see Management Reform & Mandate Relief News at and Important Issues for current developments.)

This report is also posted on the League’s website:  You may want to link this report to your municipal website, to assist in sharing this information with you constituents. For a modest fee additional copies can be reprinted by contacting Eric Bielawski at White Eagle Printing at  or (609) 586-2032 ext. 12.  For more information contact Jon Moran at (609) 695-3481 ext. 121 or
Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
