The Plan 4 NJ
Oh, and guess who’s behind the plan? Gee it’s the education lobby and teacher’s unions. We agree with their call for a special legislative session to deal with reducing property taxes, but we think it best if the legislators work on cutting spending and placing a cap on tax increases for all taxpayers. Isn't it amazing these groups have the money to advertise in the most expensive market in the country?
The Plan 4 NJ was developed by the Alliance to Reform Taxes (ART), working with tax experts and economists. The ART is a coalition of state organizations including the Education Law Center, the NAACP-NJ, the NJ Coalition for Property Tax Reform, and the New Jersey Education Association. The Plan was reviewed by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), of Washington, DC, and the Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), which found it to be a promising and sound approach to tax reform
