Increasing Tax Relief


  • Assemblyman Burzichelli is working on a measure that would increase the annual income limit for seniors and people living with disabilities to be eligible for an annual property tax deduction.  The income limit increase will help to give seniors and people living with disabilities additional relief on their property tax bills.
  • Senator Sweeney and Assemblyman Burzichelli are working on legislation which seeks to double the amount of certain retirement income a person 62 years of age or older or an individual with disabilities may exclude from taxable income under the New Jersey gross income tax.  In 2005, the retirement income exclusions were disallowed for taxpayers with annual incomes of more than $100,000.  This bill eliminates those income caps, restoring the retirement income exclusions for all taxpayers.

Constituent Corner-                      Code Blue Programs Assist Residents in Need of Shelter

The Code Blue Initiative is designed to provide shelter for homeless individuals and residents without sufficient accommodations when temperatures drop below freezing. The Code Blue Season runs from November 1st through April 15th, with designated “warming centers” operating between 6:00 pm and 6:00 am.
When a Code Blue alert is issued, volunteers collaborate with police, emergency medical services, the County Health Department and Human Services, and the state Office of Emergency Management to prepare warming centers and identify individuals who may be in need of shelter.
