Understanding NYS Property Tax Cap

There is a great deal of confusion over what the new tax cap legislation means to municipalities including school districts. Capital BOCES and Questar III's State Aid Planning and Communication Services have created a six-page brochure that provides an overview of the law and attempts to provide answers to the most frequently asked questions. Please click this link to access this brochure. Additionally, the Office of the State Comptroller has created a link on the website to address this new legislation. That website can be found at http://www.osc.state.ny.us/localgov/realprop/index.htm.
