TRENTON, N.J. – Assemblyman Jay Webber took Gov. Phil Murphy to task for failing to prioritize property tax relief.
“Budgets are about priorities, and any state budget not making property tax relief a top priority is just out of touch with the burdens and needs of New Jersey’s residents,” said Webber (R-Morris). “The cold cruel fact is that as New Jersey enters the fourth year of Governor Murphy’s reign, average property taxes have soared past the $9,100 mark. The net increase in property taxes is even higher since the governor slashed homestead property tax relief for seniors, disabled, and middle-income families. Four years into his governorship, Phil Murphy should at long last start putting property taxpayers first.”
