These NJ towns spend the least amount of their property tax bills on schools – New Jersey 101.5 FM

News

The annual Taxpayers' Guide to Education Spending issued by the state Department of Education shows local taxes accounted for 49.9% of schools' revenue in 2020-21. A year earlier, that share was higher, at 52.1%.
That exact figure varies significantly by municipality as a result of state aid, which is distributed in a way that provides the most help to places that are least able to afford to support their schools through local taxes.
Local property taxes account for less than $1 of every $10 in revenue in more than a dozen districts. In other districts, however, local taxpayers are contributing more than $4 out of $5 in revenue.
