Income tax cut? Property tax is N.J.’s real problem (Star-Ledger)

Published: Thursday, February 23, 2012, 9:16 AMLetters to the Editor/The Star-Ledger By Letters to the Editor/The Star-LedgerFrom the headlines on the front page of The Star-Ledger on Feb. 22, it appears that, yet again, Gov.  Chris Christie is out of touch. The income tax is not the problem; the property tax is the problem.And as Star-Ledger columnist Paul Mulshine so accurately and continuously points out, the specific cause of the property tax problem is the completely unequal distribution of the property tax. If all school districts in New Jersey, based on a per student per diem, received the same property tax relief, the property tax problem would go away overnight.I live in East Brunswick and I am infuriated that the Legislature allows the courts to make me pay more property tax than I have to because I have to support the schools in Newark, Camden, Elizabeth, Hoboken and the other Abbott districts, in addition to my home school district. The solution is simple. However, the Legislature and the governor are afraid to address the real issue. Get some fortitude, people!Richard B. Dondes, East Brunswick
