STATE—Seven counties out of the top 10 in the country with the highest property tax rates are in New Jersey.
The same tabulation showed that Garden State homeowners paid the highest property taxes in 13 out of the nation’s 20 top-taxed counties.
Union County’s median property tax bill of $6,727 earned the dubious distinction of making the top 10 list, while Middlesex County’s median property tax bill of $5,575 came in as the nation’s 18th highest average taxed county.
