“New Jerseyans who are feeling the impact of soaring inflation in their family budgets need tax relief now,” said Oroho (R-24). “Governor Murphy’s plan to make people wait until 2023 for rebates is too little, too late. Our Give It Back plan would provide real tax relief now to help New Jersey families pay their bills today.”

“Our disabled veterans should not have to go through needless red tape to secure basic benefits from the Motor Vehicle Commission,” said Oroho (R-24). “Under this bill, permanently disabled veterans who apply for special benefits through the MVC will only need to submit proof of their disability with their first application—not on renewal ones. This will improve efficiency at the MVC and allow our veterans to enjoy all of the benefits they so rightly earned in a timely manner.”

Gov. Murphy Has Collected $3+ Billion in Unexpected Taxes from New Jerseyans. Republicans: Give It Back!

In advance of Governor Phil Murphy’s expected announcement next week that the State has collected at least $3 billion more in taxes than he budgeted this year, Senate Republicans have introduced legislation to give it back to New Jersey taxpayers immediately through $500 and $1,000 refundable tax credits when they file their state income taxes for 2021.

Senate Republicans want to give back $3 billion of unexpected tax collections to New Jersey taxpayers immediately. Tell Gov. Murphy to #GiveItBack at www.GiveItBack.us.

“Governor Murphy has collected at least $3 billion more in taxes from New Jerseyans than he projected in his budget this year,” said Senate Republican Leader Steven Oroho (R-24). “We want to give this unexpected and unneeded windfall back to New Jersey families who are struggling to get by with surging inflation. Our plan would give New Jerseyans a $500 or $1,000 tax credit, depending on their filing status, when they file their 2021 New Jersey income tax return this spring. We’re proposing direct tax relief that would put real cash back into people’s wallets quickly.”

This will not only improve efficiency at the MVC, which is certainly needed, but it will allow our veterans to enjoy all of the benefits they so rightly earned in a timely manner.”

School funding is a driving factor in New Jersey’s exorbitant property taxes and the task force created by S-354 would study the effectiveness of the School Funding Reform Act of 2008 (SFRA) and provide recommendations for improvements.

“The state’s dubious funding formula controls the purse strings for school aid,” said Oroho (R-24). “The task force’s evaluation will help identify flaws and inconsistencies that contribute to funding imbalances. This will be an important step in improving the way taxpayer money is expended for education.”
