That question should been asked by Clinton on what she means by bias. I saw the video when she was speaking. I feel the media was covering up for her. I had no problem with them attacking Trump, so yes, the media does have a bias.

More like residents will be flooding the tax office with appeals. A better approach would be anticipating this and not using just recent sale prices as the sole basis

But that has been discussed before. The point of reviving this thread was to see if anyone had any info on the he current status of the process.

To you point Ralph a condo living downtowner paying 10k on a 800k property probably "consumes" less resources then someone in Greenville on a 25x100 lot paying 6k in taxes

And Brewster you are constantly playing devil's advocate. Judging from the fact u are a long time resident of Hamilton Park you may just be in for a surprise when the reval hits.


The budget line differences between real cities and suburbs is tremendous. Everything from uniformed services to road work cost more due to more usage. Even our roads decay much faster from the beating they take. You can't compare to NYC, it chooses to tax residential property artificially low and compensate in other taxes. Compare instead to any close-in city in Bergen, or Westchester or Nassau and our taxes look normal.

And no, I won't be surprised, but neither do I think I should be getting special treatment because I somehow deserve it. On the other hand my taxes are not as low as many round here so I don't think they'll quite double. But they might.

G-P, there are people paying 3x the effective tax rate of some Downtowners, because their assessments are way too high. FMV comps will lower them, I got one of mine lowered 2 years ago.


You can't use Newark or Patterson as a comparison either. Their property values are much lower and they employ the same services as JC. Also aside from sales tax what other taxes do NY city residents pay? The outer boroughs have extremely low taxes and tremendous services.

My original point was in response to people trying to compare property values and tax rates in Jersey city to those in the suburbs. It is not a fair comparison since an area with sparse population with a smaller base should be paying a higher rate. Using Summit as an example you can see that even with the town assuming most of the education costs they pay a far less tax rate then Jersey City pre or post reval.

Turn your argument around - do you think the guy in BELA who has been overpaying for years thinks the phase in is fair? Should he keep overpaying albeit in smaller amounts each year?

JC is long overdue to fix this reverse Robin Hood mess.

Any reval appraisals will take into consideration the new tax structure when valuing the homes. It is simple bond math.

The bigger issue is will DTJC rowhouses be attractive when they sport 30K in property taxes. I think the psychology is the million dollar question..

Maybe it's because during Obama's full term The fed kept interest rates at near zero driving the stock markets while Obama got the credit for a recovery. He simply wants recognition that the Dow continues to rise.

Hero, how is it that Bannon can be furious with Brietbart when they are a supposed shill for the Republicans?

Probably not true... but the Left needs to keep their their fascist anarchist street thugs frothing at the mouth since it has been relatively peaceful in the streets after the the 9th Circuit ruling.


Thank you for comment, BigGuy. We know all liberal democrat progressives brains linked together by invisible wire (this was on gateway pundidiot so must be true! If one progressive acts bad, all at fault.

Trump is GREAT MAN! So what if he sought help from Russia to win election? Likely didn't make a difference, but at time Hillary looked strong. This is hangable offence (treason, colluding with enemy). Our great president must suspend constitution to stay in power. Democracy over rated anyway


I love how the liberal political hacks hadn't said one bad word about Russia, until they thought Russia was hurting Her.

Then, overnight, Russia morphed into the Bogeyman for them.


Poor Comrade, you suffer from Rumpelstiltskin disease? The Kenyan liberal democrat former "president" Obama was force behind sanctions on Russia. Please write letter to congressmen to repeal! Oligarchs just want to have fun - and traveling to USA is blast!


I have posted this before and the libs ignore. Romney warned of Russian threat and Obama laughed it off. Once Hillary lost it was "yup definately the Russians".

Now who's being foolish? You can't seriously compare what Flynn did to what Holder did. By the way how is what Flynn did any different then what Hillary does/did. There is a reason the Clinton fund has been shut down.

Maybe I am missing something here - but how does doing this in 6 places waste tax money? I would think the cost is nominal, if any. I'm more perplexed by multiple/inconsistent promises being spewed forth and not upheld.


I would assume the costs would be mostly from transportation and x number of police on It at about $100 or so per hr.

I read Bill Maher had some nice words of encouragement for Donald Trump last night. He really seems to feel as many on the left that Trump is the worst possible person to be President. Funny, I seem to remember that being the case with Bush McCain and Romney as well. So I guess we should ask the left who would be the worst possible choice to succeed Trump. That person will undoubtedly be the next Republican Presidential candidate.

Agreed! Its the left that needs to denounce this behavior. If so many libs opposed the riots as Azul suggests. Then where is the outcry from the Hollywood elitists? Why isn't De Niro Streep Damon Baldwin all denouncing those actions. The rioters seem to be the ones with the voice right now. Maybe we should see how Rev AL feels about this?

It seems the entire staff is clueless.



What do you propose ?

As a kid the schools had the gymnasiums open after school and
we had access to basketball and other facilities and it was run and staffed by JC Rec. people.

. Do you really think the city needs to pay someone 117k plus benefits to do that job?
