76% of CPA’s say the new budget is bad

From Accounting Today:

New Jersey CPAs criticize state budget

More than 75 percent of CPAs in New Jersey say the Garden State’s recently enacted budget would have a negative impact on the economy, according to a new survey by the New Jersey Society of CPAs.

The NJCPA polled 921 CPAs for the survey and found that 39 percent predicted the state economy could get “marginally worse” under the 2019 state budget signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy on July 1, while 37 percent predicted it would get “significantly worse.” Another 14 percent felt the new budget would have no impact, while 10 percent believe the economy would get “marginally better” or “significantly better.”

New Jersey’s $37.4 billion spending plan raises taxes on large corporations and wealthy individuals (see Murphy signs N.J. budget after last-minute tax deal averts shutdown). Under the new budget, taxes would increase from 8.97 to 10.75 percent on taxpayers earning more than $5 million. The budget also included some notable corporate business tax changes, including a surcharge of 2.5 percent for the next two years and 1.5 percent for the subsequent two years for corporations with income of $1 million or more, along with a new combined reporting system. No change was made to the sales tax rate, although a tax will be levied on e-cigarettes and short-term lodgings, such as Airbnb.

The CPAs polled by the NJCPA pointed to several reasons why the budget plan won’t help New Jersey’s economy over the long term. Some respondents believe that taxing millionaires could lead to more residents in high-income brackets leaving the state. One CPA lamented, “The outward migration of wealth will continue, and the long-term effect will be disastrous.”

    Get ready for riots, vandalism, and arson in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles after the elections in November. In Massachusetts we won’t have any problems.

    Two reasons:
    1. We’re mostly white.
    2. We’re mostly reasonable.

    How about the New York Times being big ass homophobes? It makes me miss the good old days when you used to be able to call someone a faggot just because they were being a stupid cunt, and it it just meant your were a stupid cunt and faggot, nothing more.

    @camanpour

    Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia William J. Burns doesn’t mince his words on the Trump/Putin summit:

    “I think that press conference was the single most embarrassing performance by an American president on the world stage that I’ve ever seen.”

  7. Very Stable Genius says:

    @Comey

    Having sold out our nation on an international stage, Mr. Trump will now explain it all to Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson?
    I’m guessing RT and Sputnick were unavailable.
    He owes it to our nation to sit down with a serious journalist.

  8. grim says:

    It’s not just Trump that alienates our allies and sides with our enemies anymore. Ocasio-Cortez slams Israel as occupiers and sides with Palestine.

    Seems it’s the cool thing to do these days.

    @BillKristol

    Trump has posed the choice to Republicans in Congress and the country:

    Stand with Vladimir Putin or stand with Bob Mueller.

  10. The Great Pumpkin says:

    So what is the answer? You critique this plan, but come up with no viable solution. What’s the plan….. let’s cut the taxes on the rich, and put it on everyone else?

    Btw, cutting everything is not an option unless you want to crash the state economy.

  11. The Great Pumpkin says:

    I didn’t say investors, I said home buyers. I didn’t say specifically nj, I said the nyc metro area which has long been a safe haven for capital seeking safety in real estate. There is a reason capital seeks safety in Nyc metro market as opposed to most markets in the country.

    BTW, South jersey market is not like northeast nj market.

  12. The Great Pumpkin says:

    I’m not saying anything crazy here. It’s obvious based on past history that some markets boom and bust at a much higher level than the nyc metro market. It’s hard to find a bust where the avg home went down over 50% in the nyc metro area. It was the safest real estate market in the country over the last few booms.

  13. nwnj says:

    What is the objection exactly? Putin exposed hillary’s Criminality and a corrupt doj? That’s a service. don’t try to manipulate our elections internally and you have nothing to worry about.

  14. 3b says:

    I still think China is a far bigger threat to our country than Russia. And as for Russia s military build up this has been going on for over a decade and was in response to Russia s lackluster performance in their war with Georgia.

  15. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    Sure. OK.

    I’m not saying anything crazy here.

  16. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    I can’t wait for the riots in Dem controlled cities when the Republicans add seats in November.

  17. grim says:

    What is the objection exactly?

    You should think the objection is that Russia interfered in US elections.

    The problem is, it’s hypocritical to be so upset with this, given that the US is the king of election interference globally. We’ve covertly and overtly influenced elections all over the world, and have a track record of backing candidates that are not necessarily in alignment with our values. The State Department, the CIA, the mission of these organizations is to influence elections and policy globally in a way that is advantageous to the US.

    Should we be so shocked that a foreign government would attempt to influence an election in the exact same way that we do? We’ve delivered suitcases full of money to candidates that we supported, illegally mind you. We’ve knowingly planted stories about opposition candidates that are outright false. Hell, we’ve meddled in Russian elections previously, so it’s arguable that we did it first.

  18. Very Stable Genius says:

    @PreetBharara

    No more lectures on patriotism from this president and White House.

    Ever.

  19. Very Stable Genius says:

    @SenFeinstein

    I requested documents and an interview with Maria Butina to determine if she used the NRA to establish communications or funnel Russian money to the Trump campaign.

    She refused to comply, citing the lack of Republican support.

    Today she was charged for acting as a Russian agent.

  20. grim says:

    What’s the deal with Putin’s statement that illegal Russian money was funneled into the Clinton campaign?

  21. Mike S says:

    Question – does anyone who isn’t a total leftist + is under the age of 35, care about ‘Russia’?

    I know I don’t. I didn’t live through the cold war in my adulthood. I am glad we are trying to work with Russia.

  22. No One says:

    I think China and Russia and Iran and North Korea are a far bigger threat to the US than Netherlands, Sweden, Ireland, Germany, France, etc. in the EU.
    But the narcissistic president just obsesses over trade deficits, which will always exist due to accounting math as long as the US runs big budget deficits financed with foreign capital. Ronald Reagan would be disgusted by the unprincipled duplicity of Trump – which has nothing to do with allegations of Russian collusion. Rather he seems to have no sense of the better ethical values of Western Civilization, probably because he is mostly ignorant and a poor reader, whose every utterance appears designed to bring him more attention, indifferent to whether it’s positive or negative.
    There’s no “4D chess”, the president is playing 1D checkers, and his defenders project much more depth into his motivations than actually exists. The president has as little self-awareness and knowledge as Pumpkin, but spent more time studying and applying Dale Carnegie. I’m guessing he’s mildly dyslexic – and so probably developed his people and speaking skills to over-compensate for that weakness with the written word, becoming a people person and negotiating, proving to all the “bookworms” of the world that he can outdo them. Well he did show them, but he’s also showing what an ignorant, vain a$$ he is.
    Still probably less annoying than H. Clinton would have been. But the president could end up driving out whatever decent and intelligent people remain in the Republican party, and replacing them with his personal lackeys who seem able to find excuses for anything he does. Which means longer term, watch out for the left wing of the Dems, eventually taking control.

  23. Fast Eddie says:

    Mike S,

    The ones yelling the loudest don’t care either. It’s a personal agenda that they want… the right to be vulnerable, the right to not feel like a man, the right to be who you want, the right to be bottle fed and to shamelessly accept entitlements, a cushioned environment to mask weakness and doubt. This is what they really want.

    Last week it was the immigrants; today it’s caving to Russia, tomorrow it will be some other hysterics. Two Supreme Court justices were appointed with a third on the way, the lower courts are being stocked as well, companies are adhering to their stock holders along with those willing to produce while the looters and soy boys cry for justice and mercy.

    What’s there to be concerned about? They tried p.ussy hat marches, public displays of violence, a constant media onslaught and meanwhile, the silent majority is plotting the next move. Liberals are frightened children so let them play. They need to believe in something so let’s be compassionate and let them cry it out.

  24. No One says:

    Eddie,
    Agreed. But Trump isn’t providing the principled adult supervision needed to counter the increasing infantilization of the American citizen. The young and old who grew accustomed to suckling on Uncle Obama’s teat, and wished he could be president for life.

  25. Juice Box says:

    Grim – Putin Hates Hillary, give him a shovel and he will dig her grave and toss her in alive.

    He believes Hillary started the 2011–2013 Russian protests, and like the Arab spring, he believes it was a CIA plot to delegitimize and depose him. He also threw shade at George Soros yesterday.

    Some recent History, I doubt Hillary and Putin will ever share the same stage again.

  32. Libturd questioning the gender of Hillary's Cankle fluid. says:

    Good luck securing the internet. What are we? China? Where google and most social media is banned?

    The election was rigged through propaganda. Until you can stop your wives from buying makeup from ladies driving pink Cadillacs or your husbands from joining the shave of the month club. Then just drop it already. People need to be left to think for themselves.

  33. Bagholder says:

    I agree, remember saluting a North Korean officer? Disgraceful, right?

  34. nwnj says:

    They objected that he intervened or didn’t intervene in the manner that the deep state didn’t prefer? Let’s get real. Entrenched powers here do everything they can to sway elections the way they want. Why no outrage over that?

    Bigger yet, where is the outrage over foreign influence buying? It’s a much bigger issue.

  35. Fast Eddie says:

    I agree, remember saluting a North Korean officer? Disgraceful, right?

    It’s military courtesy according to United States Marine Corp Customs and Courtesies manual. Bowing to give a bl0w job is not a military custom.

  46. ExEssex says:

    The Republican party’s cravenness appears to be bottomless. Republicans have decided to follow Trump off a cliff of treachery. Aside from the tepid protestations of a few GOP lawmakers – none of which will be backed up with actual votes or actions – Trump has been given free rein to trash the FBI and US intelligence agencies while staunchly defending a dictator who ordered a brazen assault on America’s free elections.

  48. grim says:

    Trump was damned if he did, and damned if he didn’t.

    If he got into a pissing match with Putin, the news would be claiming he’s trying to start WW3 and will bring about nuclear holocaust.

  49. grim says:

    Honestly, he should have cancelled the summit at the last minute, after Putin arrived.

    This would have been the smartest approach.

    It would have infuriated Putin.

    He should have let some press pictures slip, of him out eating lunch instead, eating with some minor global political figure.

  50. Libturd questioning the gender of Hillary's Cankle fluid. says:

    None of this Putin sh1t means a damn thing to me. It’s about as valuable as claiming Obama wasn’t born here.

  51. grim says:

    Geopolitically, there are two strong moves Trump needs to make.

    1) Verbally state that the US will assist Europe into becoming energy independent from Russia with the goal being to reduce all Oil and Gas imports to zero.

    2) Verbally state that the US will establish heavy military presence in Eastern Europe, this is separate from NATO, and is in the spirit of establishing strong alliances with Eastern European countries (Poland, etc).

  53. ExEssex says:

    Trump has nothing to offer. No good ideas. And he’s going to kill the economy.

  54. ExEssex says:

    Flashback – 1 year ago

    you see three elements that make up most of Trump’s tweets: 1) He is reacting to a baseless allegation he ingested from conservative media, in this case a Breitbart article; 2) He is giving expression to a long-held grievance, in this case his hatred for Barack Obama; and 3) He is motivated entirely by short-term political calculation. The narrative had been centered on his campaign’s remarkable connections to Russia for the past several days, and he wanted to change that. According to The Washington Post, “Trump was brighter Sunday morning as he read several newspapers, pleased that his allegations against Obama were the dominant story, the official said.”

    But this is insane. By making such a bombastic claim, Trump foolishly put himself and his administration in serious jeopardy. Kellyanne Conway claimed on Monday that Trump had highly classified information—“He’s the president of the United States. He has information and intelligence that the rest of us do not”—but this is clearly not the case. If Trump had somehow uncovered a Watergate-level conspiracy to harm his political prospects, that would be reason enough to show receipts.

    After waiting 24 hours, his team called for Congress to investigate—clearly a fishing expedition to find a shred of evidence it can hold up as proof that Trump wasn’t just making shit up. “White House sources acknowledge that Trump had no idea whether the claims he was making were true when he made them,” reported the Weekly Standard.

    Donald Trump is a jumble of contradictory impulses. He’s all noise and no signal. Six weeks into his presidency, it’s clearer than ever that he has no idea what he’s doing.

  55. Bagholder says:

    ‘Bag holder many of us refuse to recognize the mueller investigation as legit.’

    Trump’s favorite judge reviewed and approved of Mueller’s authority last month.

  56. nwnj says:

    It was damned if you do and damned if you don’t. ABC news opened the coverage by saying the biggest Topic on the agenda was election interference. Huh? According to who? Biased investigators who dropped a worthless indictment the day before the summit.

    Esx the number one thing tearing the country apart right now is the mueller investigation. When that’s trashed I think real issues can start to be looked at objectively. Until then stop letting the fake news trigger you.

    You are missing a misguided trade war, an aversion to NATO, and a chaotic immigration policy.

    I knew crypto was in a bubble last year because when random people were talking it up and people asking me advice on whether they should buy or not. I told them that the simple fact that you were coming to me with questions was a clear sign of a bubble. Had a family member and good friends rip me apart for telling them to cash out.

    Eastern Europe is very fragile. Bosnia will be breaking up at some point soon. And other ethnic territorial disputes left over from World War 1 and 2 that were never resolved.

    ExEssex,

    What’s the frequency, Kenneth?

  94. The Great Pumpkin says:

    US President Donald Trump has said he accepts US intelligence agencies’ conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election – despite declining to do so just a day ago.

    Yo,
    Nigeria 10 yr $ bonds only pay about 6.5% in US$ despite being junk rated, then I’d have to pay nearly 50% marginal tax rates on that, so 3.5% after tax return on Nigerian bonds seems unappealing.

    Yet not so unappealing as having to visit Wayne regularly to figure out what to do with an office building that’s less than 10% occupied. Maybe Pumps could buy this sure thing and convert it into a giant San Francisco style bathhouse on one floor mixed with cuck playland on another. To save on renovation/remodeling expenses just tell clients that “doing it in cubicles” is way more exciting than in beds.

    Americans very ignorant when it comes to history.

    3b,

    Americans very ignorant when it comes to history.

    It all changed when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor. ;)

  99. 3b says:

    Fast good one! But not far from the truth! Can’t clsim to be the leader of the free world when so many Americans are ignorant of history.

  100. 3b says:

    Keep an eye on Eastern Europe much brewing there.

  101. JCer says:

    wayne office space vs. nigerian bonds. Ouch I wouldn’t want either. But at least with the real estate I could try to change the use, either residential or retail can be occupied quickly in wayne at the right price. neither seems to be priced appropriately for the likely future returns.

  102. 3b says:

    The new rental apartments are going up quickly in my town. It towers over the surrounding single family homes. One house now has the Berlin Wall in their backyard!

    Hey stupid(s) Trump has no clue regarding history – not one…

  104. 3b says:

    Hey dumb ass I never said he did! And neither did Obama or Bush!!

    And that is where Putin is going to make a very aggressive move, installing latin america styled puppets and recreating Stalin’s wall of buffer states and Trump will do nothing because of what Putin got.

    Clinton’s NATO in the Balkans’ it will not be.

    If Trump is not out by then, expect him to do nothing and actively hit the brakes so nothing happens.

  109. ExEssex says:

    The State Department of Health found statistically significant rates of leukemia, bladder, lung and thyroid cancers in Centereach, Farmingville and Selden in just four years.

    Using data from the New York State Cancer Registry, which tracks cancer prevalence in the state, an average of 18,000 cases of cancer per year were found on Long Island between 2011 and 2015.

    That means cases on Long Island made up more than 16 percent of all the cases diagnosed in New York each year.

  110. 3b says:

    Because the other dumb asses who are even dumber than the dumb assets who elected Trump went with a flawed candidate Hillary.

  111. 1987 says:

    Since Nassau and Suffolk are about 16% of the population of NewYork that works out

  112. 3b says:

    Not we went right up to Russia’s door step when we expanded NATO even after they disbanded the Warsaw Pact. So it should not be a surprise. As for dictators in Eastern Europe most of them already are or are close to being dictatorships if not they are thoroughly corrupt.

  113. ExEssex says:

    How exactly is it unconstitutional? Our poor Constitution gets so much abuse.

    Do a state that limits property tax deductions to 10k is now suing the feds for doing the same?

  117. The Great Pumpkin says:

    They raised it in the state budget if I’m not mistaken.
