HAHAHAHAHA - the last thing Jersey City needs is a city income tax, like NYC.

And renters do pay property taxes indirectly. Where do you think landlords get the funds to pay property taxes on their rental properties, as well as other expenses? NJ's tax code recognizes this and offers a tax break for renters for implied property taxes paid, based on a function of the amount of rent paid.

A city income tax is literally the worst idea I've ever read on JCList. Even worse than the guy who wanted the Port Authority to run double-decker PATH trains to increase capacity...

Literally the worst idea I've ever read as well, and it could never happen anyway. The way the New Jersey law is written, localities in New Jersey have no right to impose their own taxes, other than property taxes. Atlantic City does have a special hotel tax and Newark airport has some kind of parking tax, but both required special state legislation and were a hassle to set up, plus a kickback from those taxes goes back to the state.
