Shop Marlboro Tax Rewards Program To Launch On Marlboro Day For Residents

Marlboro residents can begin signing up for the program at the Economic Development Committee tent at Marlboro Day.

Marlboro residents are close to enjoying the benefits of the Shop Marlboro Tax Rewards program.

Registration for the program begins at Marlboro Day, where the Economic Development Committee is inviting residents to visit their tent, learn more about the program and get free registration cards.

Stay connected with the Marlboro-Colts Neck Patch Facebook.

The program is a part of the Shop Marlboro initiative to keep residents shopping in Marlboro. Residents will .

The program offers flexibility to business owners, who choose their own percentage of each purchase which will be applied to municipal taxes for individual residents.

Marlboro residents will receive free Shop Marlboro cards, courtesy of Investors Bank. When that card is registered, each resident can log on and track their purchases as well as how much money has been allotted to their block and lot.

Gentlemen, lets look at this logically. On paper it is a wonderful program, but there are not enough variety of businesses to support its concept. Earlier in this post, someone gave a dopey example that a typical family would have to spend close to 20k eating out and patronizing restaurants and fast food. This is not the real world. Marlboro has a terrible mix of businesses. Loads of restaurants, fast food and sandwich shops, nail salons, a fortune teller, a short stay rate motel and boutique businesses like the Euro boutique which are pricey and a one shop buy. The only way to rack up credits is through stores like Shoprite, A&P and Costco and who is to say that they will be participating? Manalapan has a terrific mix of stores between Symmes and Freehold Road, but this program will die on the vine because of the terrible business mix. Anyone agree or disagree?

Fincredit Nobody is being disrespectful to you or the residents of Marlboro. Nobody is saying the idea of a tax credit is bad. What is being said is that your comments of no cost to the business owner is misleading. I asked a few simply questions and you you still refuse to give any answers which would educate the business owner and consumer. Instead of going around to the business owners yourself on Marlboro day you sent TAC volunteers to the booths to give out cards and try to explain the program to people. As soon as marlboro residents find out they are losing 20% of the savings and business owners have to shell out a few hu.dred
