Subject: Taxes
Source: Star-Ledger (Newark, N.J.)
Date: Dec. 15



The Star-Ledger used a statistical index to find that residents in East Orange, NJ were paying a high amount of taxes that is disproportionate to their incomes and home values. They also found that, because "New Jersey leads the nation in property taxes on a per capita basis" and because the tax rate continues to increase, a call to amend the state constitution has been prompted. For comparison purposes, the Star-Ledger developed a "Tax Trauma Index" and examined the differences between many different New Jersey towns.
