Local Family Offers Snapshot of Sizeable Relief Assembly Dem Plan Would Deliver from Christie Property Tax Burden
Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald and Assemblymen Wayne DeAngelo and Dan Benson will visit the home of a Hamilton family on Wednesday to discuss the Assembly Democrats’ ambitious plan to provide a 20 percent property tax relief credit for New Jersey’s beleaguered homeowners.
The lawmakers will visit the Castellano family home, located at 53 Unwin Drive, Hamilton, at 3 p.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, April 18, 2012. The visit will be open to press.
The Assemblymen will be joined by the Castellano family who represent a snapshot of the struggles that working-class residents have endured under the Christie administration due to a net 20 percent increase in property taxes.
Under the Assembly Democratic plan, residents earning up to $250,000 per year would receive a 20 percent property tax relief credit against the first $10,000 paid in property taxes – resulting in significant and immediate property tax relief to 95 percent of households. The credit would rise to 25 percent for senior citizens and disabled residents. This would provide nearly $1,600 to middle-class families and nearly $2,000 for senior and disabled citizens.
