Property Tax Relief A Win For Families And Homeowners

Statement from Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I- Olean):

 

“Extending the property tax cap for four more years is a victory for our taxpayers and the economy. The tax cap has been a smashing success, stopping out-of-control tax hikes. The cap has given residents a certainty they need and deserve – allowing them to better manage their finances, provide for their children, and make ends meet. Now, they will have this sense of stability for another four years.

Senator Young Continues Fight for Property Tax Relief

Legislation passed by the Senate continues progress made in this year’s state budget

 

ALBANY – The Senate passed several measures yesterday to continue their fight for property tax relief.

 

Among those bills, the Senate passed legislation (S3019), sponsored by Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I – Olean), that would create incentives for counties to investigate and prosecute Medicaid fraud. Upon a successful fraud conviction, the local government would receive 100 percent of their local share of the original overpayment. Since the local share on some judgments may be very small, the local governments would be guaranteed at least 10 percent of any recovery, including settlements.
