“I look forward to finally having the opportunity to review the Murphy administration’s proposal for using billions in federal relief funds that were sent to New Jersey six months ago,” said Oroho, the Senate Republican Budget Officer and incoming Republican Leader. “At first blush, however, it appears the administration’s plan is grossly incomplete and fails to address key needs for New Jersey. Many months ago, Republicans offered a detailed proposal that would help workers and small businesses, support tenants and landlords, invest in infrastructure improvements, fix broken computer systems at unemployment and the MVC, and prevent unnecessary tax increases on employers. Unfortunately, most of those important priorities still haven’t been addressed.”

“How did the Murphy administration get bowled over so badly by our neighbor across the Hudson?” said Oroho, the Senate Republican Budget Officer and incoming Republican Leader. “Instead of refusing the premise of an outrageous proposal, the Murphy administration folded and agreed to give New York everything it wanted and more. NJ Transit farepayers and New Jersey taxpayers will suffer as a result.”

Oroho’s bill (S-4068) amends the way business alternative income tax can be calculated in a manner that would reduce federal tax liabilities.

“We can help corporations cut their tax bill to the feds without reducing tax revenue to the state,” said Oroho, the Senate Republican Budget Officer. “Money that would otherwise go to Washington could remain here in New Jersey if this measure is enacted. It is time for some good news for businesses in this state.”

Oroho: Poor Forecasting By the Murphy Administration Again. A Looming $252 Million Tax Increase on Employers Unnecessary

Republican Solution Would Use Money from the Feds to Help Save Jobs and Businesses

Senator Steve Oroho blamed faulty forecasting by the Murphy Administration for an enormous business payroll tax increase set to take effect on October 30 to put money into the Unemployment Insurance Fund, which the  Administration projected to be almost a billion dollars in the red by the end of June of this year.

In reality, the fund held more than $51 million on June 30, according to government documents; a billion dollar miss.

“After the Murphy Administration so poorly forecasted last year’s revenues which led them to borrow billions of dollars that proved to be completely unnecessary, they woefully forecasted the June 30 unemployment insurance trust fund balance.  The unemployment insurance tax increase was not announced until Friday, August 13.  There was plenty of time for the administration to recognize that their forecast was way off and to nix any tax increase,” said Senator Steve Oroho, the Senate Republican Budget Officer.
