Monroe Facts


Where Your Taxes Go - 2017 Projections

Municipal services represent only one component of your tax bill.


In Monroe, only 20 cents of every tax dollar goes to municipal operations and the local open space tax.

 

The operating budgets of the Monroe Board of Education, the Middlesex County Board of Freeholders and your local fire district all affect the amount of property taxes you pay.

 

The municipal administration has no jurisdiction over—or direct input into – the budgets of the school board, the county and the local fire district, which together account for approximately 80 percent of you tax bill.
