Albany, N.Y. – (06/25/11) – It’s the end of a five year battle for Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) who is proud to announce the passage of an historic piece of legislation that caps property taxes in New York State. The bill (S.5856), which Senator Ball began advocating for during his days in the Assembly, will cap property taxes to 2 percent, plus provide local schools and governments with badly needed mandate relief.
What does tax cap and mandate relief mean for New Yorkers?
Albany, N.Y. – (06/30/11) – Last week, the New York State Legislature made history, passing a Property Tax Cap bill (S.5856) that includes much needed mandate relief for local schools and governments. Now that the legislation is on its way to becoming law, a lot of New Yorkers want to know what it means for them. Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson), who has been fighting for a property tax cap since his days in the New York State Assembly, is taking the time to break down the legislation and ask New Yorkers for their input.
