SENATOR GREG BALL & TAX REFORM 2.0

CONTINUES FIGHT FOR TAX RELIEF, INCLUDES SCHOOL TAX FREEZE FOR SENIORS 

Brewster, N.Y. – (8/21/12) –Senator Greg Ball (R, C-Patterson) will be speaking with the  Heritage Hills Community on Wednesday to unveil his tax reform plan that includes local option to freeze school taxes for seniors, a circuit breaker to tie what homeowners pay in property taxes to their ability to pay, and reforms to the Property Tax Cap, making it tougher to override.

Due to skyrocketing property and school taxes, seniors living on fixed income budgets are struggling to live in New York. These seniors are joined by young families, retirees and small business owners all leaving New York due to high taxes.

Ball first proposed his Property Tax Reforms in 2006 and wrote the legislation in 2007. Despite calls from his colleagues that these reforms were unrealistic, Ball reached across the aisle and out to Senators to build support for his plan. In 2010, the Property Tax Cap passed the Senate. In 2011, the Property Tax Cap passed both houses, and was signed by the Governor.

Who:   Senator Greg Ball

What:  Property Tax Reform 2.0

When: Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012 at 10:00am

Where: Heritage Hills Community Center, Somers, NY
