On this past weekend’s episode of “Minding Your Business” on News 12+, NJBIA Chief Government Affairs Officer Chrissy Buteas talked with host Bob Considine about legislative priorities for the business community as lawmakers return to Trenton in September.
Buteas said in addition to addressing New Jersey’s highest-in-the-nation Corporate Business Tax, offsetting some the $1 billion increase in unemployment insurance tax is an immediate priority.
“There should be no additional fees that our businesses need to pay at this time because, let’s remember, all of the federal dollars that came into New Jersey were for the specific purpose of addressing the impacts of COVID=19,” Buteas said. “It includes funding the unemployment (insurance) trust fund.”
