Fred Griffin Tallahassee Real Estate Seems like your question is being asked elsewhere, as well. From,they're reporting on the exact same issue.

The People's Republic of New Jersey hasn't really put this subject up for discussion, just yet. But, with the highest real property taxes in the United States, I'm sure they don't want to lose any ground to any other state; an increase in all 567 municipalities is widely anticipated.

They can wish to raise the taxes but you can't get blood out of a turnip. We are taxed & maxed out here in IL. Everyone is in the same boat.

The only bonus we've had is that we've sold billions in legal marijuana since we began selling it.

Fred I have a feeling that isn't going to be happening in my area.  Our area is still growing it's economy a lot and so many new construction projects are in the work both commercial and residential.  People are moving here for a welcome tax relief....just staying.

They go up every year.  If voters vote to get rid of prop 13 - they will go up so high many won't be able to pay them.

They'll go up, I'm sure.  In California thankfully they're capped as to how much they can go up.

I'm sure they will go up but to what degree is the question.

Nope... already reducing any duplication of services and operation lean and mean to survive and come out of the other side of this. We live pretty frugally individually and as communities in Maine. Plus our local economy is busy and productive.

Residential property values have remained strong.

I have not considered the impact on commercial values but it does seem like many will be declining in market value and, perhaps, assessed value.

In Illinois and Chicago you can bet all taxes go up ad pray they don't tax you out. By the way, services go down!

Here in NH there is no sales or income tax. Our property values are increasing sharply. We are due to be re-assessed next year.Property taxes only seem to go up.

THE RATES will be adjusted (tweaked upward) to keep reveue level and keep police dept funded and fire dept operational. So the appearance will be no increase. However, when the recovery comes, they will be awash in taxpayer dollars. 

Watach for every imaginable revenue augmentation tool to be enabled behind the curtain.  If you are a busienss owner. understand, you are the target. I am waiting for all this social tracking software to be able to indentify everyone near the scene of a crime who did not call 911 to be fined for not being a good citizen.  That CAN happen in NYC.

 I expect a shortfall this year, but  not really much. Property values are certainly increased.

Yes I am sure there will be tax increases.  I would like to see a fair tax increase.....Also our property taxes are based on the mil levy and so our representatives will adjust this according to how much money is needed.  Our  representatives did this during 2006 and 2007. . . not fair for property owners.  Also I am sure some necessary programs will not be funded. . .

Anything that helps a person dig their way out of a hole is considered. I want to believe that tax for existing home-owners will only change upon sale

Retail is not coming back to big malls. Small kiosks, ice cream push carts and pop up vendor situations without rents will blossom. Office also will suffer- tenants wont return to large spaces they only need a conference room and most can work on kitche table with two monitors... office becomes condo, small residential and cheap housing become desireable.  The counties won't automatically reduce taxes. People will need to apply to reduce taxes and fight with county providing appraisals or BPO as the county won't let grandma pay less without a hassle.

If assessed values keep rising rates usually decline. If values decrease rate tend to increase.

Here in Pennsylvania where I am, schools are funded by local property taxes...The total population of my County is about 140,000 residents BUT we have 6 schools districts that all operate independently and ALL charge different millage rates... FYI, an average priced home in the County at $200,000 will have an annual School Tax in the neighborhood of $2500.00 or so on top of the Municipality Tax ($300-400)  and the County Tax ($500-600)...We also have a Local Income Tax and State Income Tax...In my municipality, I also pay a fire hydrant tax and a street lighting tax and a $52 a year "privilege to work" Tax...Now, I know many of you live in much larger cities and counties but the average household income in the city (not County) here is around $50,000... What I'm seeing in the last few years is older, retired, residents having to sell because they can't afford to pay the taxes any longer and it's a shame.
