I'm confused. How can you tell whose house is worth more from their property taxes?

Surprisingly Corzine's luxury condo in Hoboken is the most expensive of the 3, but even more suprisingly, Hoboken is an Abbott district and multi millionaire Corzine gets a tax abatement.

How do you feel knowing that we are footing the bill to keep Corzine’s property taxes artificially low? Now, does anyone really think Corzine wants to lower their property taxes? The simplest way is to remove Hoboken from the Abbott rolls, but that would skyrocket Corzine’s. Do you feel good that you paid for a new high school in Hoboken so Corzine and his neighbors wouldn’t have to? Does your town have a new high school with all the bells and whistles, courtesy of the rest of the taxpayers? Just some things to think about this election.

I don't care about Corzine's property taxes and I don't think Corzine does either. He's a multimillionaire. Doesn't matter to him. Once he's done in NJ, he'll be promptly moving to Manhattan, where he likes to hang out anyway. That's why he lives in Hoboken, as close as you can get to Manhattan while having to live in Jersey.

The new schools drive me nuts.

Yes, but because that tax abatement comes out of state revenue including income and corporate tax, he pays for his own tax abatement, the tax abatements for everyone in his building, and bankrolls a few Rutgers students while he's at it.

So to suggest that other people are subsidizing Corzine is beyond ridiculous.

btw, the fact that he's paying over 30k taxes in an Abbott district should dispel the myth that more aid would result in substantially lower property taxes.

You know what's ridiculous....this constant argument....

Here's an example:

A 3 million dollar house in Mahwah cost 55,000 a year in property taxes.

Jon Corzine's 3 million dollar home costs 30,000 a year in property taxes.

(I picked Mahwah because it's actually one of the towns in North Jersey that has a healthy business tax base)

As I republican, this is the type of postings that has caused the rapid decline of the party in our state. Have any of you been to a Tea party event ? The people it draws are the exact same nuts that you get on the liberal left. The only difference is you get a bunch of right wing lunatics.

Many talk about taxes, Abbott based on what some talk radio host tells them.

Its just a sad state of the party. The educated moderate are left scratching their head. Many of us will support Daggett next month.

P.S. How do you expect to attract "normal" voters when you post garbage like this. This is not how you defeat Corzine.
