Kim Guadagno on Tax Reform
Veto new tax increases
Over the past 7 years as lieutenant governor, Kim has kept her promise to oppose any new tax increase on New Jerseyans. She campaigned against the backroom deal to raise the gas tax by
23-cents a gallon and as governor, Kim will continue to stand up for New Jersey taxpayers by vetoing any "knee-jerk" tax increase proposal passed by the legislature to pay for unnecessary spending.

High state property taxes drive businesses to other states
NJ's highest-in-the-nation property taxes are the leading reason so many of our neighbors & friends are choosing to leave our state and move to places like PA, TX, and NC. If we are going to create a better future in NJ, we must start by making it more
affordable for families to live here and businesses to thrive here.
Despite a 2% cap on property tax increases at the local level, New Jerseyans saw an average increase of 2.4% last year. Our state's property tax crisis also has a profoundly negative
impact on our state's small and medium-sized businesses and our ability to recruit new jobs to the Garden State. Simply put: we cannot continue to ask New Jerseyans to work harder, longer just to pay more in property tax bills while the political class
in Trenton digs their heads in the sand.
This decades-long problem requires our leaders at the state, county & local levels to adopt a holistic strategy that finally provides middle class families and small businesses much needed property tax relief.
