Cost of Living & Taxes

The overall cost of living is fairly high compared to the national average, and just slightly above the state average. This is primarily due to the high cost of homes and housing, which are one-and-half times the national average. Grocery, transportation, and utility costs are also just slightly above average, while health care is well below.

New Jersey is considered moderately tax friendly to retirees. The state does not tax Social Security benefits, and although all other forms of retirement income are taxed, residents who are 62+ receive large deductions based on their income level. High home costs paired with the highest property tax rates in the country make for a significant expense, but some residents may qualify for a homestead exemption depending on their age and income. Sales taxes are average in the state and do not apply to medicine, groceries, and certain clothing purchases.

Health Care

There are three highly ranked medical centers and hospitals located within 15 miles of Howell. They are Hackensack Meridian Health Ocean Medical Center, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, and Community Medical Center-Toms River. All three are rated high performing in numerous adult procedures and conditions.
