TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Deployed military members from New Jersey could soon be able to defer one big expense.

A state Assembly committee on Monday advanced a bill that would allow those on deployment to delay paying property taxes until 90 days after they return.

A Senate committee has already sent the measure to that chamber’s budget committee.

Under the bill, the state government would pay property taxes for the deployed service member. When they return, the local government would reimburse the state.

Sponsors say those deployed sometimes accidentally fall behind on the tax bills while they are away.
