Please join the fight to Keep the Property Tax Cap.
The property tax cap was enacted in 2011 to help reduce New Yorkers’ tax burden. The cap limits the annual growth of property taxes levied by local governments and school districts to two percent or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. Since 2012, the vast majority of school districts and municipalities have kept spending increases below the cap, leading to significant property tax savings for residents and businesses.
