Hoboken Fire Tax?
WTF is up with the Hoboken Fire Tax?
With the city’s budget well in excess of $100 million, don’t you think that various forms of taxation are enough to cover it all (and more?) Property taxes, millions in unnecessary traffic pillaging, and all the fees and other nonsense.
No, now there’s some kind of annual Hoboken Fire Tax. See the letter various Hoboken “business operators” received below.
Hoboken Fire Dept. an official “taxing authority?”
One business “operator” wrote in:
“Since when did the Hoboken Fire Department become its own taxing authority?
Should we soon expect individual bills from the city Environmental Department, police station and road crews?
Perhaps the city tax processing office start sending their own bills too?
Maybe the Hop Stop can launch their own billing department?
When will we be on the hook for the dinner tabs for Zimmer’s vacation getaways?”
Sounds like another one of those bullshit “hidden taxes” that you, the “constituents” allow slowly by slowly (like the frog) until you’re boiled out of town.
