In a topic of importance to many Surf City taxpayers, the state legislature has sent a bill to Governor Murphy to exempt some homeowners from a new tax that would be levied on rentals of homes.
This article from NorthJersey.com details the exemptions and states that it is yet unclear whether the Governor intends to sign the new bill.
