TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–“New Jersey COVID-19 Emergency Bond Act,” authorizes issuance of State bonds totaling $5 billion and authorizes borrowing from federal government.
The bill is sponsored by: Eliana Pintor Marin, Democrat, District 29, Essex County.
This is a new proposed tax in the State of New Jersey on personal property and real estate as the bill is written and will be tacked on to your already high property tax bill.
If this bill passes and signed by Governor Murphy, get ready for your property taxes to go up even more with this new state tax.
This is New Jersey and a new property tax will be started under the disguise of good intentions but will be anything but. This is just a way to get a foot in the door to add a State of New Jersey Tax on your property tax bill.
