10 May: Van Drew Bill Authorizing Property Tax Deferment For Military Personnel Advances

TRENTON – The Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee unanimously approved legislation Monday sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew that would allow active-duty military personnel to defer property tax payments while deployed in a time of war and for a three-month period following their return.

“The men and women serving our country, especially in a time of war, should not have to worry about property tax bills back home,” said Senator Van Drew (D-Cape May/Cumberland/Atlantic), chairman of the Community and Urban Affairs Committee. “This measure will give our troops some financial peace of mind while they are deployed, and time to settle in when they return home, before they have to pull out the checkbook to pay their property taxes.”
