Hoboken property tax revaluation

hoboken-brownstone.jpgThere’s been lots of discussion all over 411 regarding the looming Hoboken property tax revaluation that will eventually happen.

You can find many existing comments over on the Hoboken University Medical Center article.

I suppose it’s time for that topic to get it’s own home, so here it is, free of any tax.

Besides the shift in who’s paying what for their property, new vs. old dwellings, what do you think the political ramifications are going to be?

Here’s a related story about a Bergen County city, and the effect of their tax revaluation.

Jersey City just announced a reval. Last one was done in 1988. What say you Hoboken Mayor and Council?

I personally can’t wait. The folks who voted for the spending finally get the bill. It will hit the fan then.

Noone voted “for the spending”. Doesn’t matter how you voted, this will affect all.

Nobody voted for spending, they voted for politicians who like to spend money. Those politicians that made those foolish & wasteful decisions largely paid for them with fat taxes on new construction that would be built in the future because they knew nobody in the older buildings would vote for them if they were going to get a massive tax hike. A reval will shift that tax burden equitably based on realistic property values so now the new construction theoretically should pay as much per $1 of value as any old walk-up or brownstone. And the voters who voted for those politicians who made the decision to spend all that money, where do they live? Not in the condos that didn’t exist when those politicians were elected. This may affect all, but not everyone will get a tax hike. This is just an exercise in allocating taxes, not a tax hike in and of itself. Revals don’t raise taxes across the board, spending increases raise taxes across the board. Voters should have realized this when they voted for people who promised city workers fat pay hikes. This is just something that will finally make sure that the tax burden is allocated fairly based on what each individual property is worth. Past time they did it IMO. And if you don’t like it, tell your elected representatives to cut spending. In response to HOB424 who said: Noone voted “for the spending”. Doesn’t matter how you voted, this will affect all.

9x a day is my max. 😀

If people knew 1/10 of the illegal crap this guy has gotten away with and the fortune it has cost US, even shills like kookywhatever would clam it up. We need a few of the Lou Picardos in this City to be uncovered and tossed in the trash to start to fix the problems. If you think Petey Cammy was a big deal… you’re too new to know what a real criminal can do to our City.

Lou is that REAL CRIMINAL. Read the links, especially YOU kookywhatever — or do you have a deal that is just as good?

If I did have a deal that was just that good, would you be jealous?

I am not Lou, I do not know Lou, I have lived here 13 years, I pay market rent, and I know plenty of the criminals that you refer to. The difference is, I don’t spend my entire day and night (or in your case LIFE) thinking about how they are getting over on me.

Just like you want to write Lou’s name 85,000 times in a day, I wanted to tell you that I think you’re batsh*t crazy. That’s all.

I love that you guys think I am Lou. I am not even a Mr.

Just an observer (mostly) of this site, who is alarmed by CPW’s constant and creepy obsession with “outing” Lou. (Who has already been outted). I hope nothing suspicious ever happens to him, because if I were a cop, you’d be the first person I would look at!!

Could this be Criminal Minds.? Remember, in youth we learn, in age, we understand. CPW – what goes around, will come around. We don’t have to the the ‘angel of death’ – a superior force will prevail and it will all come out in the wash.

If you want a good laugh. Take a look at what insider, Lou Picardo (the City’s ex-Tax collector) is paying for a huge building, complete with illegal apartments!!

Read all about it here with pictures and everything:

Or his Mansion on Castle Point terrace with the illegal apartments in it, which you can read all about here:

In this City, you have to be an insider or your pockets get turned inside out.

The sooner people wake up and tell people like Picardo and his friends that you’ve had enough, you’re going to just keep on getting screwed. If you think people like Judy and Dawn are going to help you, you’re an idiot. Those people are there to deliver the “blow” and make it look like they are trying to “help”. They aren’t there to help. They are there to deflect reality. The reality is that most citizens in this City are sheep. If you don’t want to be a sheep any longer, read the links above!!!

And then DO something about it!! Tell people! ACT!

You should really seek help, I saw Lou the other day and thought wow, I wonder if he knows he has a STALKER. I was sitting here counting the minutes until you piped in. We get it, Lou’s a crook!! Jeez give it a rest.

I’m glad Castlewatcher keeps pressing the point home. Wonder why YOU Mr Kooky Cat would try to defend a crook by “deflect and distract”?

Keep up the great work Castleman.

Just don’t bring it up 10x in 1 day, that is when it gets annoying. But do keep it up, no reason not to embarrass folks who completely are taking advantage of the system. A little humiliation for these folks is more than deserved and it might just shame a few into changing their behavior.

Gotta agree too.

Honestly earlier this year I had enough of hearing about the battle but you’ve got to respect the fact that he’s keeping on. Why let a total crook get away with this BS all the time.

Its amazing how you can hide behind a screename.

Awww….look at the cute CRAZY PERSON!!!

I don’t know Lou either way, but honestly, if this guy consumes your thoughts as much as he seems to, you have got some serious mental issues. If I were him, I would worry about my safety, I hope you don’t own a weapon. It’s just f*ing creepy.
