Bill would allow towns to delay revaluations to curb 'fiscal shock'

Jersey City lawmakers in the state Legislature want to halt implementation of this year's property revaluation until 2019, citing the "fiscal shock" faced by property owners anticipating huge tax hikes.

The bill, (S-2566), would allow municipalities who did not apply reval results to tax bills before April 1 to postpone doing so until Jan. 1, 2019. The delay would allow for towns to provide "revaluation relief abatements" or "mitigate fiscal shock" from steep tax hikes. The bill was introduced last week.

Well, it sure will be a shock for those Greenville owners who were expecting relief after overpaying for years and years supporting the downtowners.

WaPo is certainly a far left slanting paper, as far left as the NY Post us to the right. Bezos hates Trump and the paper pushes the antiTrump agenda Bezos champions.

Huh? I'm just writing what Murphy ran on, and what he's proposed. You may be in favor of taxpayer education financial support for illegal aliens, I'm not. You may be in favor for issuing illegal aliens the right to drive in NJ, I'm not. It's bitter and angry to oppose giving people living here breaking our laws our rights and privileges? I'd say that's nuts, stupid, and ignorant.

I think NJ Democrats would rather have Christie III than Murphy I. It's hard to sell multi billion dollar tax increases to your home district constituents, or tuition assistance to illegals,
or illegals getting the right to drive, yadda yadda.

Doubt it, he'll probably use it for driving lessons so illegal aliens can get drivers licenses and/or cheaper auto insurance or some other stupid 'progressive' ideal.

Maybe some snags in JC, but Kushner is doing quite well in the rest of NJ. I was at Pier Village in Long Branch on a Monday and the joint was jumping, and the additional luxury construction was rolling along. The Monmouth Mall property has hit some snags but continues to work just as retail, unlike many similar malls. The thousands of apartment units are cruising.

I can't imagine the Turnpike Authority agreeing to this. Maybe Fulop should ask for a little Holland Tunnel 'traffic study' by local police?

Won't this shift the Park n Ride exit vehicular traffic to Phillips/Jersey Ave instead of Communipaw/Johnston/Pacific/Grand, as well as having more take LSP exit to Burma/Phillips directly to Jersey? It'll obviously mean a traffic light at the Phillips/Johnston corner, but that's been needed anyway.

Fulop wants easy access from downtown to the LSC expansion project, it's a done deal I'd say.

Lo and behold, tomorrow the City Council will propose the Jersey Avenue auto bridge, adding $3 million of city money to the $10 million of state money already allocated.

The main reason Gov Christie killed the tunnel is simple. NJ would have solely responsible to pay for the inevitable multi billion dollar cost overruns. NY, the Feds, the PA would not be responsible for a penny. It was a suckers deal, and he was right to flush it. The most recent proposal is much more equitable, proving his point.

It's been quiet for a while, but wasn't there funding to build a bridge to connect Jersey Ave to LSP?
It won't take much to add a lane to support the tech village/hotel LSC project from the LSC turnpike exit. The VVP residents are already pissed at Fulop over the reval so he doesn't have to worry about ticking off the NIMBY''S.

If you don't have a mortgage but your taxes went up a lot t means you have a property that has also has greatly increased equity. Home equity line of credit, problem solved.

17% is the important number here, which is how much JC funds its own schools.

I can't think of a single city or town in Somerset County that encourages illegal aliens like Fulop does via the sanctuary city, whose children cost a ton to educate. ESL, IEP's,
meals-it all adds up.

What amazes me is that in a number of these suburban towns homeowners are living pretty nice lives in individual homes and payimg taxes in the same amount in some cases as people in JC who are crammed into condos and living with some horrible quality of life situations.

Doesn't make sense.


That's not entirely accurate. The new estimated rate in JC is 1.62%, which is one of the lowest in the state. The rest of the state pays between 2.5-3% (I forget the exact average number, but it's well above 2%, so don't quote me)

Even post reval, JC is getting quite a deal on the backs of the rest of the state.


Why do people continually point to tax rates as a measuring stick? Obviously an area with high property values will have a lower tax rate. An area with a high tax rate will lower property values. See how that works? You are also citing a tax rate while property values are at an all time high in Jc. The other cities you compare the rate to have also not just had a reval meaning their tax rate will be inflated since it would not be based on it's current market value. The point is taxes in JC are no great bargain.


How can they not be considered a bargain? JC gets the better part of half a billion dollars from the backs of other taxpayers to pay for most of its school costs.

Yes, you can agree to having your taxes raised to cover the difference.
