Martin Weber Will End “S.A.L.T” & Propose a Payroll Tax Holiday in COVID-19 Recovery

June 18, 2020

BARNEGAT, NJ: New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District Independent Candidate Martin Weber is calling for sweeping economic reforms to assist the state and the country in the COVID-19 recovery including ending “S.A.L.T” & Proposing a Payroll Tax Holiday .

“The State and Local Tax (SALT) Cap is hurting New Jersey”, says Weber referring to a signature component of the 2017 Tax Reform Bill. “This isn’t a Red State, Blue State issue… it’s a fairness issue”, adds Weber. “Although I feel we need property tax relief and reform in New Jersey, it’s not up to Washington to social-engineer that kind of policy.” Under current law, taxpayers are limited to $10,000 in federal income tax deductions for state and local taxes paid during the year. “Get me to D.C., I’ll introduce a bill to get rid of it”, says Weber. Weber, 56, is the owner of YoBuck Landscaping Company in Barnegat and sits on the Zoning Board in town. He is a U.S. Army Veteran and former Captain of the Barnegat Volunteer First Aid Squad.

Weber is also calling for a “Payroll Tax Holiday” to assist in COVID-19 relief. “New Jersey is (like many other states) slowly getting back on its feet with businesses starting to open up and people returning to work”, cites Weber. “We need to ensure that workers and business owners have the opportunity to reinvest in their households and businesses without complicated, costly government stimulus packages”. Weber states the need for action is now, but pledges to introduce legislation in the first days of taking office if action is not taken by then. Weber, being concerned about the federal deficit, notes he will work to find efficiencies in programs to minimize the impact on the deficit and overall debt picture.
