Programs to lower property taxes by shopping locally approved by Assembly Assemblyman Ron Dancer’s bill allowing municipalities to create a property tax reward program for residents who patronize local mer- chants unanimously passed the Assembly Thursday. “By encouraging people to shop locally we are helping to rebuild our main streets and small business communities,” said Dancer (R-Ocean). “It also provides much-needed relief for our residents who pay the high- est property taxes in the nation.” The bill (A4806) codifies a practice that is already in place in communi- ties like Marlboro, Union Township, Voorhees, Lacey, Toms River and others. Customers earn cash rewards by shopping at local businesses that choose to participate in the program. “Small businesses provide jobs, lend their support to community orga- nizations and causes, and create a robust economy. Unfortunately, they have been disproportionately impacted by coronavirus shutdowns and capacity restrictions,” said Dancer. “We have to save our small busi- nesses and in order to do that, we have to get creative. This program can have a positive impact on both our small businesses and loyal local customers.” Customers who register for the program would be given a rewards card to present at local participating businesses. The amount of the rebate would be determined by each individual business. Residents who shop locally would receive a lower property tax bill for the year and those who live out-of-town or are renters would earn a cash rebate.
