Singleton & Conaway Bill to Provide Property Tax Relief to Municipalities Advanced by Assembly Panel
Bill Would Restore, Over Five Years, Funding Cut from Energy Tax Receipts ProgramLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton and Herb Conaway, Jr., M.D. to provide significant property tax relief to taxpayers and municipalities by restoring funding that had been cut from the state's Energy Tax Receipts program was advanced by an Assembly panel on Monday.
"This is one of many aid programs that has been reduced since the Christie administration took over, placing an additional burden on municipalities and, consequently, taxpayers," said Singleton (D-Burlington). "When you factor in cuts to property tax relief, the average property tax bill in New Jersey has increased nearly 31 percent since 2009. That's an enormous burden that needs to be mitigated."
