Bucco disturbed by abuse of veterans tax benefits

State Sen. Anthony Bucco (R-Boonton) says that an audit conducted by the State Auditor of the Senior Citizens’ and Veterans’ property tax deduction identified “”weakness in the verification of eligibility” for the two property tax relief programs administered by the state.

“It is disturbing that programs that are designed to help seniors and veterans cope with high property taxes in New Jersey are being abused. It is encouraging that the Department of the Treasury and the Department of Revenue are in the process of implementing the State Auditor’s recommendations,” said Bucco, the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee.  “I hope that the State Auditor will continue to examine these programs and continue to identify the waste, fraud and abuse that is all-too common in the state budget.”
