As Thanksgiving approaches, the rising cost of a Thanksgiving meal is on everyone’s mind. This is because inflation makes it harder to put a Thanksgiving meal on the table. The annual Farm Bureau Survey shows that a dinner for 10 people will cost 20% more.
And the holiday spirit isn’t just being dampened by the cost of groceries. A new Stockton University Poll came out this week. It asked people in New Jersey and all over the country what they plan to do to save money.
Many said they would give fewer gifts and even travel less during the holidays. People think that affordability is one of the most important issues in the state. Many homeowners say that property taxes are one of the hardest things they have to pay.
Late last week, the Murphy administration said that the deadline for applying for the new Anchor property tax relief program will be moved to January 31, 2023. Gov. Phil Murphy talks about why the extension was made,
who in New Jersey can get a break on their property taxes, and if his administration thinks Anchor will be able to stay open for many years.
