Join us in Albany for a Rally and Lobbying Day in Support of the Property Tax Cap

May 03, 2011 J

As jobs and families are fleeing our state, the State Assembly fails to act on the Governor’s 2% Property Tax Cap that will give taxpayers and businesses some relief from out of control property tax increases.

New York has the highest local taxes in the country – 79 percent above the national average. Taxpayers saw their property taxes rise 73 percent from 1998 through 2008, more than twice the rate of inflation. It is no wonder that 9 of the top 10 counties in the nation with the highest property taxes rates when measured against home values are located here in New York State.

Support Property Tax Cap Legislation

March 02, 2011 J

The New York State Assembly will be voting on Governor Cuomo’s 2% Property Tax Cap Legislation (A.3982). This same piece of legislation was passed overwhelmingly with bipartisan support in the Senate 45-17. As you know, New Yorkers have paid some of the highest real property taxes in the country, with homeowner taxes in most of the state ranging from 30 percent to 178 percent above the national average. Over the past decade, property taxes have grown more than double the inflation rate.
