The local tax inspectors

The local tax inspectors DOUBLED the value of her house, when nothing had apparently changed. This caused her property taxes to skyrocket in a state where property taxes have already skyrocketed long ago.

My guess is she was quite upset at the tax hearing.

Everyone I know in NJ pays at least more than $4,000. Most who are close to me are paying $6,000 / year in property taxes. In Gloucester where this woman is located I've heard of people being charged nearly $10,000 per year for taxes on modest middle class homes, depending on where they are located. These homes wouldn't even break $1k in annual property tax in many other states, for some it would be only a few hundred per year in other states.

No wonder most people are looking for the exit doors. When I talk to people in NJ everyone seems to be making their plans to get out of here. The only reason I'm still here is because I grew up here and all my friends/family are here.


Good for her

But she hasn't gotten her guns back. This woman's plight should convince everyone to carry a personal recording device.

Very interesting turn of events.

Thanks for the follow up on this over reaction by people who don't want anyone to know about their rights under the Constitution, much less exercise them. The conclusion should also be very interesting.

BTW, for anyone in NJ... I just received notice that the NJ LIBERTY HQ (formerly NJ RP HQ) is active again. They will be holding a seminar about activism soon. I don't have the info at hand but, if anyone is interested, I will find it and post it for NJ DPers.
