Projections differ on tax revenue for New Jersey

New Jersey's state treasurer is predicting $511-million boost in tax revenue for the state, a lower figure that the $913 million projected by the Office

WESTFIELD - New Jersey's state treasurer is predicting $511-million boost in tax revenue for the state, a lower figure that the $913 million projected by the Office of Legislative Services.

Gov. Chris Christie is looking to give some relief to New Jersey homeowners and is proposing to double property-tax rebates after figures from the Office of Legislative Services.

One New Jersey resident told News 12 it doesn't matter what lawmakers do with the surplus as long as the state stops borrowing money. Another recommends the money be put into education.
