Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order directing a full audit of New Jersey tax incentive programs has won him the praise of Americans for Prosperity-New Jersey, a leader in the fight against tax handouts for private corporations.
“We look forward to unrigging the tax code here and removing barriers to economic success for both businesses and individuals,” said Erica Jedynak, the AFP-NJ state director. “Unrigging the corporate tax code in New Jersey is a winning bipartisan issue.”
Jedynak praised State Sen. Michael Doherty (R-Oxford) and Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains) for their leadership in the fight against corporate welfare.
“We hope this is a first sign of bipartisan reform in the New Jersey government to spend tax dollars more wisely, which can ultimately lead to lower taxes for all residents,” Jedynak said.
AFP-NJ opposed then-Gov. Chris Christie’s offer of $5 million in tax incentives to bring a new Amazon corporate headquarters to New Jersey.
