Office convene to discuss 2 percent tax cap and how it affects local municipalities

The year 2012 is still in its infancy, but an issue that dates back years in New York State and other states, is dominating its first steps into the New Year. Local municipalities and school districts will work to get under the inaugural 2 percent property tax cap that was enacted by Governor Andrew Cuomo in June.

La Marmite in Williston Park went from a fine dining restaurant to debating ground on Jan. 10. The Nassau County Village Officials Association (NCVOA), New York Conference of Mayors (NYCOM) and the State Comptroller’s Office hammered out the issues and implications on the property tax cap and its affect on municipalities.

School Districts to Be Reimbursed

At the last New Hyde Park/Garden City school board meeting, board trustee Tricia Rudd announced that from this day forward the state has exempted all school boards from the MTA tax they had previously imposed.

Rudd went on to say, “School districts will be reimbursed for payments made to date and then be free of the need to pay at all. BOCES and special districts will no longer have to pay the tax and to pay this we had to borrow money. This is effective immediately. This is a big win for all school districts   This law should never have been put into effect, but at least they corrected the mistake. We got a few people out of office, especially the one person who pushed for this law.
