Statement from Governor Murphy on IRS Ruling Against NJ Taxpayers

06/11/2019

“The IRS today made clear it is not interested in fairness for New Jersey’s taxpayers. Instead, it protects President Trump’s politicization of the federal tax code. Finalizing a rule that prohibits us from following decades of precedent to protect our residents’ tax deductions is a gut-punch to middle-class families who know that the Trump tax plan is a complete sham. We will continue to fight alongside our Congressional delegation and sister states to restore our residents’ full SALT deductions.”
