Property Taxes

Our Take: New Jersey needs a well-reasoned, statewide legislative solution on the tax status of not-for-profit hospitals. A single ruling in New Jersey tax court in June 2015 has led to great uncertainty and has spawned nearly 40 lawsuits pitting municipalities against their local not-for-profit hospitals. Legislation, rather than litigation, can help identify a reasonable balance that would allow hospitals to contribute to the municipal services they use without jeopardizing hospitals’ ability to care for their communities. NJHA supports two current bills in Trenton that would move us toward an equitable statewide approach. They are: A-3625S-2329, which calls for a state study commission on the issue, and S-2212/A-3888, which would protect Payment in Lieu of Taxes agreements between hospitals and municipalities.
