Video: Most New Jerseyans Support Bold Tax Reform

According to a new poll, a majority of New Jersey voters believe the state’s wealthiest individuals and corporations do not pay their fair share in taxes.

NJPP president Gordon MacInnes appeared on NJTV to discuss the poll results and what they mean for state legislators as they consider Governor Murphy’s fiscal year 2019 budget.

While taxes are generally unpopular, there is broad support for proposals that promote fairness in the tax code and would allow New Jersey to reinvest in critical assets like public education and transit infrastructure. A majority of New Jersey voters support a millionaires tax, reimplementation of the estate tax, and a surcharge on corporations with earnings greater than $1 million per year.
