Just a little more than a week after Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi announced that his campaign for another term as county executive would be about a property tax revolution, the energy tax imposed on Nassau County residents kicked in on June 1.
Suozzi announced the need for the tax as part of his plan to close a projected deficit in the county’s budget. The 2.5 percent tax will be imposed on residential energy sources and servicing including gas, propane in containers of 100 pounds or more, electricity and steam as well as coal, fuel oil and wood for residential heating.
Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi has announced his bid to run for re-election to the post he has held since 2001. Suozzi will be running this November to continue as the Nassau County Executive in a time when residents are hurting financially from a national recession.
With residents of Nassau County particularly finding it difficult to continue their way of life in the communities they call home because of the property tax burden, Suozzi says it’s time for a property tax revolution.
