Sounds to me like you are being an asshole. Just leave him alone. If his presence bothers you so much then you move out. He's entitled to live wherever he wants.

Hypocrisy indeed.



The federal tax change reduces the credit for ALL state and local taxes, and it's slashed it from an unlimited amount (non-AMT) to $10,000. They also reduced the tax benefits of mortgages.

NJ has had the same homeowner tax credit for years, not to mention that state taxes are significantly lower than federal. Oh, and Trenton didn't suddenly cut it in a way that targets Republican-leaning counties.


Please. New Jersey doesn't allow you to deduct ANY mortgage interest.

From State of NJ Division of taxation:

'Homeowners and tenants who pay property taxes, either directly or through rent, on a principal residence in New Jersey may qualify for either a deduction or a refundable credit.

The property tax deduction reduces your taxable income. The amount of the benefit depends on the amount of your taxable income, the amount of your property taxes or rent, and your filing status. You may be able to deduct up to 100% of your property taxes or $10,000, whichever is less. For tenants, 18% of rent paid during the year is considered property taxes paid.

The property tax credit reduces your tax due because it is subtracted directly from your tax liability. The benefit is a refundable credit of $50.

You can claim only one of these benefits on your tax return. If you qualify (see Eligibility Requirements), follow the instructions in the New Jersey Resident Income Tax return (Form NJ-1040 1.06 mb) to determine if the credit or deduction will give you the greater benefit. If you are using NJ WebFile, the program will determine the greater benefit for you."

Seems like Federal tax law is simply becoming compliant with NJ tax law.

Hypocrisy indeed.

One thing that's really difficult is that a lot of the people most adversely affected by the tax increase were real pioneers who purchased homes here in the early 80s and got behind the community, effectuated significant change and ultimately did more for Jersey City than any politician or developer. Now after pulling Jersey City from out of the depths, many of them may be forced to sell and move. The process doesn't seem to pay any deference to their efforts. For a lot of these people, downtown Jersey City is a uniquely special place to live. So the fact that they could sell their homes and maybe cash in with a lot of money may not be so comforting. They actually CREATED a community here and created a place that was unique and special. Now they have to think about where they could go and live and feel as comfortable. It's a hard pill to swallow and it's something I wish people would feel sensitive to.


Apparently what contributed to that burgeoning sense of community all along was local tax policy. Or should I say lack thereof. Until now.

It's a complete fallacy to blanketly say that tax abated properties were paying less taxes than non-tax abated properties by comparison.


A fair point, pre reval. But doesn't this mean you're still paying close to $10k post reval at a similar valuation of your neighbors while your neighbors will pay close to $30k post reval? If I have that correct, that's still messed up, just in reverse.

And to someone's earlier point, there is no sympathy for DTJC residents paying the proper tax on million dollar homes while underpaying for many years.

Remember, 1.6% is still one of the lowest rates in the entire state! All the while still making the state subsidize 2/3 of the JC school system. That's a pretty solid deal in my view.


Yes you are correct about the pre-reval vs. post-real flip in the who-is-benefiting category. My re-val is a little more than half-way over. So the way I look at it I'm was getting screwed in comparison to many of my neighbors during the first half and I'm doing the screwing in the second half. Of course when my abatement is over then I'm in the same boat as my neighbors.

In the end though I just wanted to point out that tax abated properties do pay a lot in property taxes. At least I am. It's certainly not nothing.

I have a tax abatement on my downtown condo. Expires sometime in 2027. I read the actual abatement agreement and the appraisal should not effect how much property taxes I owe. I'll still be paying the same $10,400 or so until 2028.

Re: pre-paying 2018 taxes

The first step would be to figure out if you paid AMT in your 2016 federal tax return. If you did then I wouldn't even bother prepaying your property taxes in 2017. Look at line 45 of your 2016 form 1040. If there is an amount there then you paid AMT and you received no federal tax benefit from paying property taxes.

Great job Mr. Mayor. Keep up the Trump resistance.


Can you please clarify how someone who normally itemizes would wind up in AMT category by simply paying extra in taxes this year? Please use real numbers/figures and citations.


Sorry. I don't have time to go through all that as if I'm in class and you're the teacher making me prove out my math answer. If you were familiar with the intricacies of personal federal tax returns then you would know this to be true.

I went inside that school a few months ago to register my kids for the pre-school lottery. I was very disappointed. The JC public schools are given an insane amount of money and yet the schools DON'T have central air conditioning???!! After all these decades???!!! That's crazy. The entire building looks like it's never been renovated at all after almost 100 years of existence. I checked out the Principles office. Nobody was in it. However I did notice that the office stunk like the bottom of an ashtray. What the hell is that? You mean to tell me this Principal is able to break the law by smoking in a public building (not to mention a building that's full of children) and keep his job for almost 50 years???!!! Sickening.

Regardless of where you sit in the political spectrum, you ought to be asking yourself why is the mainstream media so out of touch with the realities of the current political winds. All the way until yesterday, most outlets were predicting a loss for the Republicans that would show how support for Trump had eroded and which could be harbinger of more bad news and perhaps even the beginning of the end for his presidency. Despite a reported $23MM investment by the Democratic Party, their candidate still lost. If that kind of money can't secure an election victory, there should be some serious soul searching as to why that is, and how to fix that problem.

Now, today, much is being made about the fact that the margin of victory was slim (just a hair under 4%) and the meaning of that, but what is being ignored by most (but, surprisingly, it was highlighted by an NPR analyst) is the fact that Handel made a HUGE comeback after garnering under 20% of the general vote during the first round of voting that led to this runoff election.

Ultimately, why are CNN, NYT, and all these other news outlets, getting it so wrong in forecasting these elections? Why is the "Trump voter" so underestimated or improperly polled or missed? These are all questions that will gain more importance and urgency as the mid term elections approach.


Quick answer: Because it's the reporting by the MSM and the polls conducted by the pollsters in conjunction with the MSM are more a reflection of wishful thinking than they are a reflection of objective analysis.
And this results in the Democratic constituency shaking their heads at the ultimate resulsts and wondering "HOW CAN THIS BE???!!!" It's because they happily drink the Kool-aid they are given.

I love the anti-Trump chalking and I hope it continues. I laugh at it every time I see it. It shows to me and everyone else how petulantly childish the left can be. And I think many others feel that way when they see the chalk. It only helps republicans for 2018 and beyond in my opinion. Chalking on the sidewalk is something many children do after all. So I say chalk away losers/haters.
