The tax payment should be similar for all. While builders like lefrak get big tax abatement on rental properties in Newport ? Does tax system treat everyone similarly ? A person living in 1M is not rich by any means and 16K may be 10% of his annual salary so it hurts..

Property taxes should be fair.

That's fair and equal. If a lawyer, living in a brownstone, worth 1,000,000 cannot afford to pay another 6,000 (and with new tax law, exempt it from his taxes beyond 10,000), he or she needs to reconsider what to do with the property. I have a feeling the lawyer will be able to afford the 60 percent increase. I know it sucks, but fair is fair and other parts of the city should not be taxed unequally and disadvantaged.


The mortgage alone, without taxes, on a $1MM property, assuming a 20% down payment, totals to more than the entire median household income of the US. An average family could not afford to live in a place like that, even if they did not need to eat, or have any electricity usage, or any other expenses at all. Not even any federal taxes.

Translation:

Yes.. only rich people can afford million dollar properties.

It's a good thing taxes are not based on 30 year old values then, isn't it?

Of course it is. The quality of life in Journal Square is increasing as more properties are built, and more amenities move in.

I say that as a forty year resident of Summit Avenue by Journal Square.

Re: NJ Rates Your Public Schools - What's Your PS Score?

As a graduate of Prep, and a non-athlete, as well as a person who rarely watches sports, I disagree in part.

An over-emphasis on sports and winning can be bad for kids, and take up too much of their time.

But, most varsity sports have a few months of a season, and it is up to parents to monitor their kids performance in other areas. Many of my friends and classmates who were on teams also were well represented in other clubs and activities, as well as community service. There were also a good number of them in the top ten percent of the graduating class.

Aside from that, Prep has no athlete track with easier courses. The athletes sink or swim on their merits.

I had something similar back when I was still in IT.

It's a bit too much for a person who just wants to recover a SATA drive. IDE drives haven't been a thing in years. The OP will never use those other interfaces. I haven't needed to address any issues with an IDE drive in at least five years.

Re: PATH (pathetic attempt at transporting humans)

As a motorcycle rider, I say fuck no to that. Heavy merged, like at the approaches to,, and the post-toll access ways to the tunnels are terrible. They are the only places where I routinely almost get hit when riding, and got hit once.

People are so anxious to crowd each other away at a merge, and motorcyclists are basically invisible to most drivers, that is is very easy to simply get knocked over.

It is against a very important maxim of riding, to keep distance between you and the cars that will be trying to kill you.

One of the biggest things they could do to alleviate some crowding, or at least lessen discomfort, is pass some kind of regulation that backpacks and messenger bags need to be off the shoulder in the train. When a few people with packed backpacks are in the car, it makes it difficult to get in or out, and it takes up space.

Re: pre-paying 2018 taxes

Home away from home


What NJ does is immaterial since the state and local tax deduction wording, as written, means that even if you pre-pay it, you will not be able to deduct it for 2017 taxes. The language of the new tax law only allows you to deduct state and local taxes in the year they are due.

It was written purposefully to prevent prepayment.

I would be very careful eating anything grown in open lots in Jersey City. Chromium, and other contamination is widespread due to industrial ore tailings and by products being given to people for free decades ago to be used for fill, for landscaping.

I had a garden when I lived in town, but all in raised boxes, with commercially bought topsoil.

Those pins were not produced by the campaign, your disingenuous ass.

As for your previous stupid post, Van Vorst did not take up arms against the Union to maintain slavery.

People like you should be ashamed of yourselves, drawing equivalence between traitorous rebels that killed more Americans than the Nazis with other figures that have something else going for them besides being Confederate generals and leaders.

Scum like you deserve the scorn you get here.

It was issued months after the passage of the Historic District. All the bold fonts in the world won't change that fact, nor the fact that he did not use the appeals process in any way, but instead decided to be a crank and just complain and state conspiracy theories.

It's all in the decision for the case to proceed. The judge tossed the due process claims for being inadequate.

This 100% wrong. See the Zoning Code at 345-71. l. 9. There is no explicit prohibition on vinyl siding in the Historic design standards.

Here's the link, scroll down to L. 9. for the applicable section.

He would still need a certificate of appropriateness to install vinyl siding.

Those deals are vaporware. Not a single contract was signed. It was a wish list, much like the fake signing ceremony for privatizing air traffic control.

Of course, Trumpies need imaginary accomplishments to distract from obstruction of justice.

Re: no motorcycles or scooters in jersey city?

I rode a motorcycle for commuting down to Edison for years before getting married and moving out to the burbs. I had a garage for mine. Motorcycle riders have mostly not been riding until a week or two ago due to the rainy spring, but a few diehard commuters have been on them all winter.

I would just be careful about taking certain routes in town. Be mindful of streets that end in choke points, like the approaches to the Holland Tunnel. Drivers tend to merge aggressively and may not see you. Make sure you also ride in the middle of your lane. I had a car hit me when it tried to squeeze through my lane to make a light that was turning red for which I decided to stop since I was turning left.

A simpleton's understanding of sexuality is not a justification of stupid opinion. Sex and gender is much more complex than external naughty bits.

BTW, "trangerism" is what right wing scumbags use to vilify transgenderism. Try not to show your colors.

The report is incorrect. They still processed the visa applications. They just subjected them to extra vetting. they kept granting visas in that entire period.
