New York homeowners are sick and tired of paying the highest property taxes in the nation.
Property tax increases have made it difficult for seniors to stay in their homes, tougher for young people to afford to purchase their first home and have squeezed the budgets of families and businesses across the state.
Placing a cap on school and local government property taxes would provide the relief that homeowners desperately need.
I recently supported Senate passage of a property tax relief bill that would cap the growth of local tax levies at two percent or the consumer price index, whichever is less. Forty three other states have some type of cap on property taxes and have seen reductions in property taxes – New York should become the 44th.
The bill passed by the Senate was originally proposed by Governor Cuomo – all we need is for the Assembly to join us in passing it so it can become law.
Your help is vital to making a property tax cap a reality. Please join our fight by signing the petition below and pass it on to other New Yorkers who are fed up with skyrocketing property taxes.
Help us send a message to the Assembly that homeowners want to cap property taxes now!
