Let’s just fix it! Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Despite our best efforts there will always be folks who fail to appreciate, or just don’t want to hear, that — unlike what apparently happened during the mortgage crisis — most of those overburdened by property taxes did nothing wrong. They did not buy “too big a house”. They bought what they could afford. They took care of their finances, often paid off the mortgage years ago, have made no improvements, and now with income frequently stagnant or flat in retirement they find that New York State’s taxation and fiscal policies along with the vagaries of the real estate market have led to property tax bills larger than their former annual mortgage payments.
