TRENTON NJ,  New Jersey Governor  Phil Murphy on Tuesday gave a glimpse of his 2017 tax returns, showing that his income climbed by about 48 percent to $6.8 million in 2017. No surprise Murphy, a former Goldman Sachs executive invested $22.5 million in his campaign for governor last year .

But what set off a lot of people was that fact that Murphy’s tax returns listed a New York address . With over 2 million people fleeing the state in less than 10 years it seems that even the governor doesn’t want to live in New Jersey .

Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25) jeered at the listing of a New York post office address on Phil and Tammy Murphy’s 2017 tax returns.
“Interesting, isn’t it, that while he was running for Governor of NJ, his tax returns show a NY home address,” said Carroll.
The Murphys’ tax returns can be found here.
“Maybe you media guys, to whom he proposes to release the balance of the document, should ask to see his NJ state returns,” the Republican assemblyman from Morris County added.

  1. Wasn’t Mr. Murphy obliged to live in New Jersey in order to run for Governor here? Or are we nothing more than a colony of New York?
