The vast majority of SALT deductions goes to high earners. How is that equitable to middle income families?

Nonsense, JC tax rates are far less than NJ average rates. Why? JC taxpayers pay less than 20% of its own school costs, sponging from suburban taxpayers.

Maybe JC taxpayers should consider paying to educate their own kids instead of sponging off suburban taxpayers first?

As much as I oppose his politics and apparent misogyny (wonder how much Fireman paid him off over his Liberty State Park vote) he is entitled to due process over the allegations. Fulop’s silence, not even a comment, is damning.

JC spends 25% more per student than the state average, and has some of the worst schools in the entire state. Funding largesse obvious the issue. Somehow I’d guess there is a lot more waste, corruption, graft, nepotism, etc in JC than Princeton. Maybe address the waste first?

How about the state give each child X of state support, and if local towns want to exceed that they could tax the local residents more to support it?

If wealth is generated in Jersey City, how come the suburban and rural parts of the state subsidize Jersey City schools? It's like reverse Robinhood. Steal from the poor to give to the rich!


NJ’s two biggest cities combined to suck up over 1.3 Billion in the last recorded school year. Go back over ten years (when they were getting more!) and it’s probably 15 billion. If the cities were such drivers why s that. And JC has the nerve to add a payroll tax (exempting JC residents!).

Tying JC to NYC as a example is absurd on about a zillion levels, lol. That would be like comparing the Hudson Mall to Short Hills.

Please show us data, like I provide you. The graduated state income tax, costs the higher earning NJ taxpayers much more. And the wealthier NJ residents who work in NYC (less and less each year) also pay state income tax on other revenue they earn outside of salary. But show some numbers rather than an opinion not supported by the facts.

Thinking it so doesn’t make so. Please provide hard numbers, as I did.

The Short Hills Mall, one of the highest sales per square foot malls in the country-Newport isn’t even in the top ten in the state. Wanna bet who send more sales tax cash to Trenton. All 8 NJ billionaires don’t earn their living in JC. Tiny Short Hills has 3, paying the states highest RE taxes, while paying for your schools. Appooloza Fund, which was next door to the SH Mall, was sending hundreds of millions in taxes to NJ-so much that the billionaire owner moved it to Florida.

So let’s see your numbers!

And in the last year listed by the state the two largest NJ cities, Newark and JC received a combined 1.338 BILLION in state school funding, siphoned from suburban taxpayers. One year!

Then let the state pay for our police, fire, and health infrastructure.
. And why should NJ taxpayers do that?

Will this cost JC taxpayers more money? I’m sure the residents outside downtown don’t care about Fulop’s virtue signaling if it costs them more money to accomplish this.

In other words you can’t support your statements, and attempt to deny the proof I offer in links to state provided data, lol. BILLIONS of dollars. Luckily even NJ Democrats are beginning to insist JC taxpayers begin to pay their fair share.

Here is the state list of tax rates for suburban Morris County. Compare those numbers to JC, whose rate is much lower at 1.540. The difference is mostly that suburban towns get a tiny amount of school funding back from Trenton.

https://www.nj.gov/cgi-bin/education/c ... dist_code2390&maxhits=650

For one year, JC taxpayers received $575 million for schools from Trenton. The link above shows previous years, showing JC has gotten BILLIONS from state taxpayers, while paying well under 20% of the costs of educating its own kids.

Can you provide a link proving your claim that JC sends more $ to Trenton than it receives? Because I proved mine with data from the state database.

Much of sales tax in JC is half the state average at 3%. Do you really think Newport Mall generates anything near what the Mall at Short Hills or Riverside Square does,
lol? And the dollar stores and bodegas in JC compared to, say, downtown Summit or Rudgewood or Princeton? Anyone thinking JC contributes more to Trenton than it receives back in school support, Section 8 funding, etc has no grip on reality. In school support alone JC has gotten BILLIONS from suburban taxpayers. And the result are some of the worst schools in NJ.

And the local schools that suburban taxpayers fund through local real estate taxes is because they get a pittance back from Trenton (from their income taxes and sales taxes) because towns like JC and Newark get BILLIONS.

Bayonne residents pay more than twice what JC residents do. JC needs to pay its fair share. JC has bled suburban taxpayers of billions of dollars to support its schools, which are awful.
