Statement in Response to Legislation to make the Property Tax Cap Permanent

By Stephen J. Acquario, Executive Director of the New York State Association of Counties

"On Tuesday, state lawmakers are passing legislation to make the property tax cap permanent.
On behalf of New York's county governments, we appreciate the state's continued focus on our high property taxes. Anything government can do to stabilize and lower property taxes is welcome news for homeowners and businesses
We encourage both houses of the legislature to hold public hearings on property taxes, the property tax cap, and ways that state and local governments can work together to lower this burden. We need to avoid further population loss that leaves more financial responsibility for those that remain in our great state. In a public hearing, state lawmakers can hear from local officials the impact that state policies have in our communities."
