We have all heard the rumors of the new 3.8% tax that is going into effect in January 2013. The questions have varied from, is this a new Real Estate tax on top of the one that we already have to pay in New Jersey to it is a tax just based upon your income. The rumors and questions surrounding this tax have been growing stronger as January gets closer. People from Toms River and other areas of Ocean and Monmouth County to people all over the United States want answers.
