The state is cracking down on New Yorkers exploiting two programs aimed at housing cost relief.

Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced an effort to expose “double dippers” who live in rent-regulated apartments while also claiming a School Tax Relief, or STAR exemption on a different home. A cross-check of rent regulation and the New STAR registry turned up more than 150 names.

State Taxation and Finance Commissioner Thomas Mattox says it is common sense – if you lease a rent-regulated apartment, you cannot have another home as your primary residence.

Nassau County’s Financial Control Board has voted to extend a three-year wage freeze for county workers.

According to Newsday, the Control Board has determined that there’s only one way for the freeze to be lifted.  County Executive Ed Mangano would have to use nearly 130-million dollars in new revenue to cover raises.  That money could reportedly come from speed camera fines, mortgage recording fees and sales taxes.
