Chris Christie on Tax Reform

 


Reduce all income tax brackets by 10% and restore EITC

In my budget, I will fulfill a promise I made to all the people of New Jersey in 2009. Real relief from the heavy income tax burden that has strangled our families and forced many to move away.

I propose to reduce income tax rates for each and every New Jerseyan. In every tax bracket. By 10% across the board.

In fact, Jon Corzine and Jim McGreevey have raised taxes on the average New Jersey family by more than $10,000 since 2002--over $22 billion in taxes, the highest in the nation.

This will change in a Christie Administration. Highlights from Chris' plan to cut our taxes:

Keep property tax rebate program
