What a disgrace! I am a resident of Cambridge Heights and cannot believe that my taxes have been raised again to an amount that is inconceivable for townhouse living. Why do we have to pay the price for Nutley's corrupt local government. They should all be ashamed of the fact that they are ripping off newcomers while trying to keep the older residents happy. The so called independent assessment that was done is a joke.

I agree. My husband before I married him got out of the same town house community you are now living in after 2 years being a resident - the taxes had doubled. Only to move into Cambridge Crossings (where I lived in Clifton) our taxes there went from 6500 to 9200 in less than two years....needless to say it is not just nutley that is greedy. We now live in a modest but good single family home in the area and are managing so much better with the taxes and general improvement in quality of life.......get out of the town house life - it's a total rip off (bait & switch)

To PPP,
Why did you buy the townhouse in the first place? The taxes were high from the day they were built. Now you want to complain? We, the people that have been in this town are the ones that should complain. Our taxes went up cause of all the extra people that now live in our town and the schools are over crowded. Now the town has to go in and maintain the streets that we aren't aloud on. Thats BS. Why should my taxes pay to clear your street when I'm not even aloud in there?

senior citizen living in nutley twenty years gets the shaft because due to high taxes. familys making a hundred thousand
.a year between husband and wife with children in school are benifiting while the eighty year old citizen has an income of fourteen thousand a year. where is the fairness. seniros have to sell their home and wonder what willhappen to them. taxes were based on land this year and the old houses with no updates are not going to get the amount the town predictes. this tax structure this year is un fair to owners of older homes. evens be ashame of yourself for not careing mor for seniors.

Is there a citizen's action group that I can join to take legal action to reduce our taxes. I just received 3rd quater tax and it went up 100%!! No improvements were done to my SFR property since I moved here in 1999.

I live at the Regency condo's on River Road and our taxes have sky rocketed. For a one bedroom condo we were paying 2400 per year. I felt that was low but when they told us they were going up from 2400 to 4520 I almost passed out. That is an increase of 92% or $180 per month. My phone line, dsl line, satelite tv, and cell phone run me about $180 per month. You can not blame this on Nutley though in my eyes. This is clearly the state of NJ mandating that each township/city reassess the property values at the peak selling point. I think the entire government sucks. If you want to laugh go look at what you can buy in Mesa, AZ for $300,000. The funny thing is taxes are only $1,200 for that Mesa ranch.

The township needs to consider lowering the tax rate.

What all the Nutley residents do not mention is that the Township has no re-valued the homes in 27 years. So you have condo owners paying $10,000 in taxes, while those living in large homes sitting on a acre of land paying $2,500 per year. The 27 year free ride has come to an end,

This year the the tax burden is put on the shoulders of the home owner. In the past it was put on the shoulders of the business owner.
Business owners can pocket some of their ernings
while the home owner pockets the tax burden.

It is a sad day when a senior citizen who worked most of their life must give up their home due to the high increase of property tax. This country is the greatest but it should be ashamed of what it is doing to its senior citizens.

I grew up in Nutley and bought a condo in the Regency January 2006. I am a first time home buyer and although you expect that your taxes may increase a bit you don't expect them to increase 95%.$4500 a year in taxes for a condo is absurd. I planned extremely careful to make sure the purchase I made meets my budget and a year later I have to unfortunately sell. I'm getting out of Essex county and looking elsewhere for a starter home, no more condo!

I want to buy a townhouse / condo in Belleville/Nutley area. I am living in a rented apartment & instead of paying the rent every month, I'm planning to buy a home, but I am thinking of paying huge taxes. I cannot decide what should I do, should I go for condo or townhouse? Plz help me!

Do you still there? I know someone who is looking to buy there and just did a search trying to find out what the taxes are and I found your post. Any info you can give will be appreciated. The price of the 1 bdrm condos doesn't seem too high, but I'm wondering if it's because of high taxes. How is the neighborhood flood/crimewise? Is it because

I was born and raised here in Nutley, as were my brothers & sisters, mom and Dad, and my grandparents on both sides.
I've never seen this breed of politician, that we have in Nutley and Trenton today. You need to examine what you consider middleclass and what the rest of us call middle class. Most of us can't afford to live in the type of town you invision. For instance,I really don't need solid oak Panels and counters in our Town Hall. Updating can be done inexpensivly and with taste. Anyone can spend money. What we need is some real leaders.
