Hello again Susan,
My name isXXXXX'm a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.
Here's what I can report based on the results of my legal research. There are cases going back some decades, but I excluded them as you mentioned wanting recent judicial precedent.
Bursztyn v. Burzstyn, 379 N.J. Super. 385 (App. Div. 2005) is fairly recent, but it holds the opposite way (finding the Court did enjoy such power).
The recent holding to the contrary, however, always comes up being Nebraska, although I realize you were thinking otherwise. There's a nice overview here of that holding (plus mention of states going either way):
Some Tax Things Cannot Be Forced
And yes, I would agree that the language of the opinion is indeed "resounding" (to quote the commentator). It's quite recent, and in fact consistently turns up as the most recent when I search all domestic jurisdictions.
Here's that case:
Bock v. Dalbey
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.
I truly hope all works out for you.
