0.125 percent sales tax overcharges and other shocks to the system!

Dear Editor:
On Jan. 1, 2017, the sales tax rate was reduced from 7 percent to a new rate of 6.875 percent. Problem is, most businesses are still charging the old rate. This is especially troublesome for big ticket items and fixed income families.
In the next few weeks, I will be writing on other tax rip-off items as well. One subject will be water and sewage surcharges. There’s only one water meter in the building. Trouble is, I live by myself, above a successful restaurant. Get the picture? According to the city of Hoboken both the restaurant and myself are suppose to be paying the same amount $23.24 per month.
To complete the trifecta, I will be writing about property tax for residential and mixed use buildings. Currently, I am having audio CD’s from a rent leveling hearing date on Oct. 26, 2016 transcribed. A sneak preview description would be “Jaw Dropping” – wait a second, did someday just say “Class Action Lawsuit?”
To resolve any problem you’re having with the sales tax, call 1-609-262-6400 or go www.njtaxation.org ask for refund claim form A-3730. Yes, you will need your recipe with the offending 7 percent on it. By the way, tell these stores to get with the program!
