02 Mar: Doria Bill To Provide Property Tax Deferment For Deployed Military

TRENTON – A bill sponsored by Senator Joseph V. Doria which would provide a property tax deferment for enlisted members of the Armed Forces in the event that they are deployed for active duty in a time of war was approved by the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee by a vote of 4-0.

“Our brave men and women serving on the front lines defending American liberty and freedom abroad deserve a little consideration in terms of everyday life back home,” said Senator Doria, D-Hudson, who also serves as Mayor of Bayonne. “In New Jersey, property taxes are one of the biggest burdens of everyday life, and our military families have enough to worry about, given the dangers their loved ones face in times of war. This bill would allow military families to put off paying property taxes until after our soldiers are safe back at home.”
