If you study the tax tables for five minutes, you'll see that towns with higher home assessments have lower tax rates, while the opposite is true of towns with lower assessed homes. So in Woodlynne, their tax rate is super high but the average home assessment might be $79k, while Robbinsville has a low tax rate but assessments are really high and so the tax burden is much higher in Robbinsville. And I think yes, you can correlate home value/assessment with quality of life and schools. This list is looking strictly at tax rate, which is really meaningless. As someone pointed out above, why not rank them in tax rate to service ratio? Or some other meaningful way.

Also, Brian, don't be an idiot. Why would you suggest taxes get raised to make it more fair?? Towns need to spend more responsibly so that everyone's taxes can get lowered.
