Commuters Could Pay For Working in New York
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringers wants commuters from Paramus and everywhere else to pay for working in New York.
New Milford residents who commute into New York City could end up paying a tax for doing so if the Manhattan Borough president has his way.
Scott Stringer wants to reinstate a 0.45 percent tax taken from the salaries of workers who don't live in New York City.
Gov. Chris Christie, unsurprisingly, hates the idea, the Associated Press reports. He said New Jersey and New York should avoid "border wars."
The Star-Ledger editorial board called the proposal a "campaign stunt." Stringer is running for mayor in 2013.
