your property tax bill
Your Property Tax Bill

Your township’s share of the high school tax levy is determined by the State of New Jersey based upon equalized property values, not by DVRHS.

Your total property tax bill is comprised of:

  • Local School Taxes (elementary school)
  • Regional School Taxes (DVRHS)
  • Local Taxes (Municipality)
  • County and Library Taxes

The high school tax levy represents a portion of your total property tax bill. As such, increases/decreases in high school taxes represent an increase/decrease in a portion of your tax bill – not your total tax bill.
