Unshackle Upstate Thanks Governor Cuomo for Tax Cap Support

Posted: Jun 2nd, 2015

“Since its enactment in 2011, the 2-percent property tax cap has saved New York’s hardworking families and businesses $7.6 billion. And in addition to broad support among the state’s business community, 70 percent of taxpayers across the state support the tax cap.

While we’re grateful that Governor Cuomo supports a tax cap extension, the numbers clearly show that a permanent property tax cap will continue to deliver significant savings to struggling taxpayers across the state.

We encourage the Assembly to pass the Senate’s permanent property tax cap bill and advance it the governor before the end of this year’s legislative session.”
