New Jersey about to impose a 'rain tax', Yes they want to tax you if it rains
If the property taxes in New Jersey don't break you they'll get you with the 'rain tax'. One way or another they are going to turn you into a revenue stream.
In this case, literally.
Save it for a rainy day. Some of your hard-earned dollars may be taken away as the weather turns ugly and rain drops fall on the Garden State. A new bill calls for the creation of local or regional storm water utilities, giving local counties and municipalities the power to collect a tax from properties with large paved surfaces such as parking lots, CBS2’s Meg Baker reported.
That’s businesses and homeowners.
