I continuously receive feedback from Onondaga County taxpayers regarding increasing property taxes which continue to cripple the Upstate economy and act as a deterrent to young adults remaining or returning to the Central New York region to live, work and raise a family. To address this issue which has become one of the most important ones for NY State, my Senate Republican colleagues and I released The Homeowner Protection and Property Tax Rebate Act that would provide:
-A property tax rebate or new tax relief credit for every middle class family;
-A property tax cap to hold the line on spending;
-A property tax freeze for seniors age 70 or older;
-Mandate relief to reduce local costs which increase taxes.
