Hoboken, New Jersey (My9NJ) -
The town of Hoboken, New Jersey is cracking down on Uber cars driving in and picking up passengers in the city.
Uber is an app that you can use to request a car service to pick you up, but city officials say they are not licensed to operate in town.
Marcus Enriquez was actually thrown out of an Uber car by a Hoboken police officer. He said he was hailing an Uber outside of the Hoboken taxi stand when a cop knocked on the window, kicked him out of the car and ticketed the Uber driver.
In the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2014, the city of Detroit projected it would bring in $55 million in property taxes. Instead, it collected just $6.7 million, about $48.3 million short of what it expected.
The city revealed the shortfall in its most recent filing with the Michigan Department of Treasury by Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr.
“Borrowers Tap Their Homes at a Hot Clip” blurted a recent Wall Street Journal Headline.
It was bound to happen with rising home prices.
Didn’t get a raise? or working two jobs to make ends meet and need cash? If you own a home you may be in luck. That same old home that you bought years ago is worth more today than it was last year. Your house hasn’t become more productive and most likely has depreciated, but it’s worth more and that means you can margin your used home to cash in.
