NEW JERSEYANS FEEL HEAVILY BURDENED BY TAXES BUT WILLING TO CONSIDER MURPHY INITIATIVES
What do you call the state of affairs when four out of five residents say they pay too much in taxes for what they get? New Jersey. Just 17 percent say they get their money’s worth for the state and local taxes they pay. And, by a margin of 64 to 6 percent, Garden State residents say they get a worse rather than better deal than taxpayers in other states.

STATE OF THE GARDEN STATE: NEW JERSEYANS UPSET WITH NJ ECONOMIC CONDITIONS AND TAXES; STILL POSITIVE ABOUT NJ BUT LESS SO THAN IN THE PAST THREE IN TEN SAY THEY WOULD LIKE TO MOVE OUT OF STATE
New Jerseyans are in a malaise these days when it comes to the Garden State: they are angry about the state’s economic climate, and even though they still rate the state positively as a place to live, they are mostly pessimistic about the direction the state is headed. While the vast majority love the neighborhood they are living in, a sizeable number of residents – more than in the past – say they would like to move somewhere else. These are some of the main findings from a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll late last year, as detailed in the newly released “2018 State of the Garden State” report.
