How sleazy is this?

They trumpet the hell out of the fact that Lottery winnings in NJ aren’t taxed, and then they go make them taxable….retroactively.

Wow. So if you got about $25,000 earlier this year, paid off all your debts, took the missus to Bermuda for a week and spent a weekend in AC, you’re not going to be too pleased when you fill out your state tax return.

<insert epithet indicating that the state is pathetic here>.
