The NYS Property Tax Freeze Credit and you
When New York passed its state budget, it enacted
a property tax freeze credit for homeowners. The credit will be
implemented as rebate checks for STAR-eligible homeowners based on
property taxes levied by school districts and municipalities (village,
town, county, library, etc.) that are subject to the property tax levy
If a school district’s adopted tax levy is under the
cap, as Schoharie Central’s is, homeowners will receive a rebate for the
increase in their school taxes for the 2014-15 year.
I decided to hop on the bus to Albany recently to learn a Career and
Technical Education subject with my SCS High School friends.
