Governor Andrew Cuomo is saying “no” to property tax increases and wants to impose a state freeze.
Cuomo says the property taxes in New York are already among the highest in the country. He says the freeze he’s promoting is designed to encourage towns across the state to consolidate and share services, such as fire and police departments. Cuomo claims the answer to high taxes is less government, rather than more. Cuomo’s budget is due on April 1st.
