STATE AID AND LOCAL TAXES
The level of public services in New Jersey's various municipalities and the amount of property taxes that are paid in those municipalities are dependent on many factors.  The New Jersey State League of Municipalities has produced a brochure explaining how these factors, including state aid, affect local taxes.  Most of the so-called "state aid" derives from sources that were originally collected locally by municipalities but were then either abolished or taken over by the state, with the amounts given to municipalities later reduced by the state.  Reading this brochure will help residents understand how these state actions have affected Hawthorne's budget and those of other municipalities.
