Of all the moves that occurred in New Jersey last year, 63 percent of them were people leaving the state to move somewhere else.
A big reason for that is New Jersey's property taxes, which are the highest in the nation. They are literally breaking up generations of families.
In 2016, the property tax on a home priced at the state median was $7,601 in New Jersey, but only $2,654 in Texas and $1,702 in Florida.
To lower property taxes, elected officials at the state and local level will need to exercise fiscal discipline. No more wasteful spending.
