ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A new state law will make it less expensive for out-of-state bus companies to bring tourists to Atlantic City.
The bill to exempt these companies from corporate business taxes was signed Wednesday by Gov. Chris Christie.
“The out-of-state buses that travel to Atlantic City represent a vital part of our local economy, bringing thousands of tourists to the resort each year,” said Sen. Jeff Van Drew, D-Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, who sponsored the bill. “We need to do our part to make sure the buses continue to run, and that companies bringing folks to the city, including our restaurants and shops, aren’t hindered by New Jersey’s tax structure. As we continue our work to revitalize the resort area, this will encourage more business, travel and tourism to Atlantic City.”
