Meet Our New Tax Board Member!

The Ocean County Board of Taxation is no longer a one-man show. Eighteen nominees for county tax boards statewide were confirmed Monday by the state Senate, including Nick Montenegro, 66, of Point Pleasant. Montenegro will join sitting Tax Commissioner P.G. Waxman, 50, of Lakewood, who was himself awarded another five-year term on the board. As a consequence of attrition and other factors in Trenton, Waxman has been its sole member since March. Waxman was forced to cancel Wednesday’s annual organizational meeting of the tax board after he realized no one would be there to second his nomination as its president. “I did not think it appropriate to reorganize myself, with myself, by myself,” Waxman quipped. “I’m happy to get an additional commissioner… It’s like having a lawn with a seven zone sprinkler system during a drought. Only one zone works and then the repairman fixes a second zone. Still, what does the lawn look like?”. App

  1. The board used to have two licensed appraisers. Appraisers know value COLD and they know what is going on with assessments and values. The tax board now has a broker (PG) and an attorney. What is so difficult for the Governor to get more tax board members? Like PG says they have two sprinklers on when there should be seven. It is not right! The people deserve better!
