How hard has the Gloucester Township property tax increases hit your Holiday wallet?

Gloucester Township, Camden County

As Gloucester Township residents rested their taxpayer revolt hats, another taxing reality has taken shape. What the huge bite out of your wallet, did to the money you were hoping to have for the December Holiday gifts that you wanted to buy family members and loved ones. Some folks are going the route of "bargain hunting", others are cutting back. However there are those who would like to crawl up into a ball, until the Holidays are over, because they just don't have the means to buy gifts for those they have in the past. The property tax increases have taken their toll on not only folks who pay their taxes quarterly, but those who pay it in their mortgage. The new monthly mortgage has jumped up enough that less or no money could be saved for the holidays.

Those seniors that get a property tax freeze, will still be required to pay the higher property tax, then wait for the State to reimburse them months later. Some are losing their homes for the higher property taxes which has increased to higher than their mortgage ever was. Gloucester Township Politicians should have thought this through hard before hurting the people of the town the way that they did. Residents are people. It hurts the people of Gloucester Township
