New Law Means Change in How Your Tax Bill Looks

New Law Means Change in How Your Tax Bill Looks
Thanks to a new law enacted on March 21, there will now be a dedicated line item on property tax bills that shows the minimum amount of funding going toward municipal and joint free public libraries.

Taxpayers may notice something new on their tax bill this month. Thanks to a new law enacted on March 21 by Gov. Chris Christie, there will now be a dedicated line item on property tax bills that shows the minimum amount of funding going toward municipal and joint free public libraries. In the past this number has been included in the municipal tax levy and tax rate, but now those numbers will be separated and you will get a better idea of where your hard earned dollars are going. The law simply provides a dedicated line item for municipal libraries on the property tax bill, creating a new level of transparency. The change does not result in an increase in taxes or change existing financial, operational, personnel or other relationships between a municipality and the library. For more information on the change visit www.ebpl.org or call 732-390-6767.
