Gov. Murphy pushes for tax on millionaires ahead of state budgetPosted: Updated:
Gov. Phil Murphy says property taxpayers would get a $125 refundable credit on their income taxes under a plan he's proposing that includes imposing higher tax rates on millionaires.
Murphy in May first proposed using better-than-expected revenue proceeds this fiscal year to fund $250 million in property tax relief.
The proposal hinges on lawmakers also increasing income tax rates on those making more than $1 million.
Murphy offered details of his plan for the first time Monday in Hackensack.
The relief Murphy proposes is just a fraction of the state's $8,767 average annual property tax bill.
It's not clear the proposal will go anywhere in the Democrat-led Legislature.
Senate President Steve Sweeney has already said he's opposed to raising taxes.
