To the contrary, my legislation would return to beach towns a portion of the taxes collected by businesses within their borders to replace the revenue generated by beach tags.Under S 648, beach towns would receive monthly distributions from the state equal to 2 percent of their sales and use tax collections from the previous month.In total, my proposal would return tens of millions of dollars to beach towns, certainly in the ballpark of what would be needed to adequately replace beach tag fees.Local businesses and the shore economy would receive an additional boost when families who no longer have to pay $25 or $30 for beach tags have extra cash to spend on meals, souvenirs and entertainment.That extra economic activity would result in more taxable sales within beach municipalities and an even greater return of sales tax revenues to those towns.New Jersey may also want to consider how other beach destinations fund their beaches. For example, Myrtle Beach awards franchises to businesses to manage certain sections of the city’s beach.
