NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt called on Governor Phil Murphy to refund shore rental tax money. His press release on the issue follows:
Trenton, NJ - Governor Murphy has announced that he will be eliminating the shore rental tax going forward. The Governor has admitted that the tax was an unnecessary burden and many people say that mom and pop rentals were inadvertently taxed.
The NJGOP has been repeatedly calling for the end of the shore rental tax .
NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement:
"Governor Murphy has admitted he made a mistake, but now it's time to rectify that mistake. He must refund the money to the mom and pops who were forced to pay his shore rental tax this summer. Otherwise, it’s safe to assume it was intentional, and another democratic money grab no different than when Murphy tried to steal $33M from the firemen’s burial and hardship fund. Here’s the Governor’s chance to put his money where his mouth is, or better yet, back in the wallets of the moms and pops he took it from.”
