You left out all the boroughs in New York City. I feel we get unfairly taxed.I'm afraid they might be considering a "Walk on my sidewalk" tax!

In South Jersey my property taxes are over $10,000.00 per year. 

The New Jersey and New York property tax system is unsustainable.  Excessive property taxes are a major player in the present foreclosure crisis.
