Report your tax increases here!

There have been several entries on Hoboken411 regarding the massive property tax increase in Hoboken:

Did the bills all go up equally?

Some folks have been “comparing notes” about their tax bills – how much they were previously – and how much they’ve gone up. Figured I’d create a separate entry to see what your neighbors found when they opened the envelope!

I’ve heard rumblings that not all increases were the same between residents. What’s up with that?

And how did the parks tax make it to the bill? Didn’t Tax Collector Louis Picardo say “he didn’t know” how much it would be?

REPORT YOUR BILLS IN THE COMMENT SECTION!

Additionally – not everyone will receive an actual property tax increase (some just get the parks tax). So let’s find out by taking this reader poll:

No, just human. After monitoring Judy’s lack of transparency, I now say that the newly elected officials shall strive to be the leaders of good responsible government and hire a very professional BA or allow the public to vote on the form of Govt. to City Manager/Council and hire a profession highly qualified corporation counsel. Is that good enough for you? Of course, when we can then develop a plan and let Judy go so that we can govern ourselves.[/quote]

Judy Tripodi is not governing anything or anybody. All she is doing is making sure that the city of Hoboken collects property taxes on time and forwards the appropriate portion to the state. That is it! No investigations, no budget cutting, no government restructuring!

Fellow taxpayers and renters – if you haven’t been voting in local elections, please register to vote for the Board of Education and City elections this spring. Your cost of living depends on it. For application:

Go to Radio Shack, buy a bullhorn, take it to the council meeting(s)- go early at 6:30PM so you can use it outside – When you go for walks around town take it with you and let everyone know what your think of our governing body 💡 If it results in good change, it is a good investment.

I just got a letter from my management company pushing the services of Gess Gess & Scanlon to appeal the property tax assessment. Are people really doing this? My attitude is it is what it is. I’m looking forward to voting in the next election and hopefully that outcome will result in some change.
