Legislation sponsored by Senator Jennifer Beck (R- Monmouth) and Senate President Steve Sweeney (D- Gloucester/Cumberland/Salem) to prevent abuse of the state’s farmland assessment law passed the state Assembly on a 70-4 vote today.
The legislation was first introduced by both Senators in 2008.
“I want to thank Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver for posting this bill for a vote today,” said Beck. “This bill modernizes the law to better ensure that the 98% property tax break provided by program is only given to those who actively work the land, and that taxpayers are not footing the bill for neighbors whose sole motivation is to avoid paying taxes instead of farming.”
