Increased NJ Payroll Taxes for 2020

In case you all didn’t know, payroll tax rates will be increasing in 2020 for SUI/SDI contributions. Taxable income for employees is moving above $131,000 from $34,400 currently - almost 4 times greater!

A big thank you to a Governor Murphy for making this possible - the middle class loves being taxed more, instead of cutting expenses elsewhere.

Fluorescent bulb disposal

I just swapped out eight 8' fluorescent bulbs in the garage. What do I do with the old ones? Can I just break them and throw them in the trash? Will a trash hauler pick them up for a fee?

Name That Movie- Part I

I thought it would be fun to list a line from a famous movie and then have someone try to remember or guess what movie it is actually from. List the movie and then post another line and move on down the line, etc.

First movie question:

Quote: "I always knew it would end like this, my life ending in the sky falling and surrounded by all these purple dildos"!


Hint: The title of this movie is just two words only!
