JOIN THE FIGHT: Make the Tax Cap Permanent

SEN. William J. Larkin, Jr.

Senator Larkin: Protecting Taxpayers

One of my top priorities for the upcoming 2018 Legislative Session is to make the state’s Property Tax Cap permanent.  

I helped pass the tax cap in 2011. Since its enactment, it has been New York’s number one property tax-fighting tool. The tax cap has been extremely successful, particularly in the Hudson Valley, in keeping taxes down and saving New Yorkers billions.

In fact, since 2011, the tax cap has delivered over $23 billion in property tax savings to New York families, seniors and businesses.  A permanent property tax cap would keep property taxes down and help to ensure that future Legislatures could not easily undo this critical tax-fighting tool.  

In the upcoming year, my colleagues and I will once again focus on an agenda that gives middle-class families and small businesses a brighter future. Making the property tax cap permanent is a great place to start.

We need to send a clear message to the Assembly Majority that now is the time to make the tax cap permanent.  You can add your voice to our fight to lower taxes and make New York State and the Hudson Valley a more affordable place to call home.
