It is a local tax assessed and collected by the Borough of Closter for the support of the school district, county government, and municipal government. The amount of local property tax (tax levy) is determined each year by the amount of revenue needed to meet the municipal budget requirements not covered by fees and other revenue sources. this along with the needs of the school district and the county determine the amount needed to be raised by taxation.
