When it comes to property taxes, making comparisons across towns in New Jersey is no simple matter. To help shed light on the subject, The Star-Ledger is producing a series of articles and interactive features on various aspects of the property tax system.

This page is home to the statistical tools created for this project. Here you will be able to examine the relationship between taxing and spending in your town and how your town compares with others.

You also will find interactive tools dealing with special subjects -- such as the impact of property tax revaluations on local tax levies.

We will be updating and improving this site over time. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please let us know.
