Reader Mail: Tax bill shock
Just got this email from a resident who was shocked to open their property tax bill this week:
Blindsided by the bill
“i hope and pray the wave of discontent toward our legislators extends to hoboken city government.
i just received my tax bill today and it’s $1,000 more THIS QUARTER than it was before.
there was no note or letter attached to the bill explaining anything.
this is outrageous. i feel completely blindsided. but i have myself to blame.
i am ordinarily quite cynical when it comes to politics. so when my city council person, beth mason, promised to lower taxes through a more transparent system, i thought, okay, lets give her a shot.
shame on me.”
