Understanding the Tax Rate

In Avon-by-the-Sea the total tax rate consists of three separate and autonomous entities:
Avon School District
Monmouth County
and the Borough of Avon.

Avon School District:
Budget is created by the Board of Education and voted on by the community.

Monmouth County:
The Board of Chosen Freeholders compiles the budget. Your County budget appears on the tax bill broken down as follows:
County tax
Health tax
Open space tax

Borough of Avon:
The Board of Commissioners constructs the budget, publishes a synopsis in the newspaper and then votes on it after two public hearings. Each budget is submitted to the Monmouth County Board of Taxation, who adds the three budgets together and divides that total by the total assessed value of the municipality. The rate is based on each $100.00 of assessed value.
