This property tax bill shows a separate line item showing the minimum required appropriation for the Hackettstown Public Library as a separate tax levy pursuant to a recently enacted State law (P.L. 2011, c.38). The municipal tax levy was reduced by the same amount as the new library tax levy. This change does not result in a property tax increase and is to help you better understand the costs of library services reflected in your tax bill.
