POLL: NJ Taxpayers Want Property Taxes Cut First
They'd rather see less property than income taxes.
More New Jersey taxpayers would prefer to see property taxes cut than income taxes, according to a newly released Rutgers-Eagleton poll.
While 52 percent of state residents support Gov. Chris Christie's proposal to cut income taxes by 10 percent across the board, 75 percent say they would rather see property taxes reduced before income taxes.
The poll also showed that most voters overestimate how much an income tax cut would save them per year. While most voters think they would save $750, that's not quite the case. A taxpayer making $50,000 would save just under $100 per year and someone making $100,000 would save about $275 per year.
