Kearny faces another tax increase for second half of year

KEARNY - Another property tax hike is in the cards for local residents and businesses as the town prepares to mail tax bills for the third and fourth quarters of the calendar year.

The bills will include a 2 percent increase in the municipal portion of the tax bill over the first and second quarters of 2006, along with increases of 2.5 percent in county taxes and 1 percent in school taxes.

The end result is a 2.9 percent hike in tax bills. That translates into a $51 per quarter increase for the average Kearny home assessed at $100,000, for a total of $102 for the remainder of 2006.

Of that total, the municipal tax increase, which was approved by Kearny officials at a meeting last week, accounts for $17 of the $51 per quarter increase, with an additional $20 per quarter for school taxes and $14 for county taxes.

Over the past year, the municipal tax rate has spiked a whopping 18.6 percent, with the largest portion of that increase, at 15.8 percent, added in bills paid in February and May.

Those bills, however, contained a net tax increase of just 4.5 percent because the rise in municipal taxes was offset by a decrease in county taxes.

The estimated municipal tax rate for this year's summer and fall bills stands at $12.66 per $1,000 of assessed property value, compared to $10.67 from the same period last year.

The estimated tax levy represents anticipated increases in fixed costs such as state pension obligations for police, fire and municipal personnel, health insurance and salaries, according to Santos.

Sorry this creep of a Mayor isn't going anywhere now he is hooked up with the county. Only thing left to do is help Jim get elected in the 3rd ward and hope it catches on we need good people to get involved. We need to stop the corruption. There are job in the BOE right now that are going to go to the politically connected . Ask the two councilwomen in the 2nd ward why they work so hard for the county candidates. There are job a stake they and their cronies want to fill with family. If you do nothing, belive it they will take every last crumb.
