“For more than two years, we’ve been urging Governor Murphy to fight against New York’s unjust taxation of New Jerseyans. I can’t imagine why it took so long, but I’m glad he finally took our advice.

“Had the governor listened sooner, it’s possible that telecommuters from New Jersey could have saved thousands of dollars or more in unnecessary income tax payments to New York. Our State could have gained billions in new tax revenues that could have been used to prevent school funding cuts and support greater property tax relief.

“While we can never get those two years of inaction back, I’m glad he finally felt the pressure to do something.”

An editorial by Oroho addressing the issue was published by NJ.com on August 21, 2020.
