‘Rain Tax’ Likely To Become Reality In New Jersey

Idea Is To Protect Garden State's Streams, Rivers And Bays From Potentially Toxic Storm Runoff From Salt And Lawn Fertilizers

ELIZABETH, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — New Jersey is one of the highest taxed states in the country.

Now, residents and businesses could be taxed extra … when it rains.

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.

It's New Jersey, one of the leading "new slavery" states.
This probably won't be stopped (short of a second civil war).

If you're in Jersey, and want to again "breathe free", the only route is to jump on the modern-day Underground Railroad and get yourself outta there.

Otherwise, prepare to pay the price.
