After steep increases, property tax rates even out in Barrington, nearby

Does it feel like your property taxes have doubled in the past decade? That’s not quite the case, but it is extremely close.

The average property tax paid by a Barrington homeowner in 2011 was $7,023, up 91 percent from $3,677 in 2000, according to state records.

Still, Barrington is a relative bargain compared with the statewide property tax average of more than $7,500 in 2010. And the total falls below that of neighbors Haddon Heights — $7,362 in 2010) and Haddonfield ($12,089 in 2010).

Among the borough and its neighbors, Lawnside had the biggest rate of increase over that period — from $2,836 to $5,285, a change of 86 percent.

Furthermore, the property tax rate has flattened in recent years, dropping to an increase of less than 2 percent in the latter half of the last decade.

    To be fair, it would also be nice to see the amount of $ the state/county have funded to the school district between 2000 and 2010 , as well as the avg local tax and school tax between 2000 and 2010. This would truely show where and why they have risen so muchl.
