RETIRED MAN PAYS $12,000.00 IN REAL ESTATE TAXES.  HIS SOCIAL SECURITY RETIREMENT IS APPX. $15,000.00 A YEAR.

FEELS THAT HE HAS WORKED ALL HIS LIFE JUST TO PAY HIS TAXES.

 

     FROM NASSAU COUNTY;  

MARY IS PAYING OVER $20.000.00 IN PROPERTY TAX. (MORE THAN 20% OF WHAT SHE EARNS)

     UNLESS THINGS CHANGE, SHE WILL HAVE TO MOVE OUT OF NEW YORK STATE. 

      HER CHILDREN CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY HOMES IN NYS.     

AS THEY WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE TAXES.

 

     FROM SKANEATELES;

VINCENT P. IS PAYING $32,000.00 IN PROPERTY TAX.

THIS REPRESENTS 35% OF HIS RETIREMENT INCOME.

     HE HAS NO CHILDREN IN SCHOOL, GETS NO WATER  SEWER OR GARBAGE  SERVICES.  FEELS HE GETS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR HIS MONEY.

 

      FROM ULSTER COUNTY;

V. S., WITH HOUSEHOLD INCOME OF $44,000.00 IS PAYING $12,000.00 OF IT IN PROPERTY TAX.  THAT COMES TO 28% OF THEIR INCOME.

 

    FROM NORTHERN NEW YORK:

LAWERENCE N. BUILDS HOME, 21 YEARS AGO, TO BE HIS  FAMILY’S PERMANENT RESIDENCE.  HAS ADJUSTED HOUSEHOLD INCOME OF $80,000.00 AND PAYS 25% OF THAT FOR PROPERTY TAX.   

     HE IS MOST THANKFUL THAT HIS TWO CHILDREN, WHO ARE IN COLLEGE, HAVE EARNED SCHOLARSHIPS, OTHERWISE HE AND HIS WIFE WOULD NOT HAVE ENOUGH LEFT TO EAT OR PAY THEIR UTILITY BILLS. 

     THEY ARE UNABLE TO  SAVE ANY MONEY FOR  THEIR

RETIREMENT.  NEEDS A CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL !

 

 

      FROM FRANKLIN COUNTY;

72 YEAR OLD MAN AND WIFE WITH AN ANUAL GROSS INCOME OF $58,000.00 ARE PAYING OVER $12,000.00 OF IT IN TAXES. 

     FEELS IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL THEY WILL LOSE THEIR HOME.

 

      FROM KINGSTON;

NORA,  WHOSE FAMILY HASE BEEN IN THE REGION SINCE THE YEAR 1640 HAS ALREADY SOLD ONE HOME BECAUSE OF THE UNSUSTAINABLE TAXES, NOW FEELS SHE WILL HAVE TO SELL AGAIN, THIS TIME SHE WILL BE FORCED TO MOVE OUT OF THE STATE.

 

      FROM SARANAC LAKE;

CLAUDE R. M.D. A NEW YORK PHYSICIAN, MUST SELL HOME DUE TO A THREE FOLD TAX INCREASE.  NEEDS TO DO IT SOON, WHILE HE IS STILL EMPLOYABLE IN ANOTHER STATE.

 

     FROM KRIPPLEBUSH;

MAN’S TAXES GO UP 251% IN 5 YEARS ON A 3    BEDROOM. 1500 SQUARE FOOT HOME.

     PLEADS FOR REFORM.

 

     FROM  ROCKLAND COUNTY;

E.K., AN I.B.M EMPLOYEE;  SOLD HOME, MOVED TO TENN. HER TAXES NOW ARE $ 0.

 

FROM LAKE PLEASANT;

NATIVE RESIDENTS FEEL THAT VERY SOON, ONLY THE WEALTHY WILL BE ABLE TO LIVE IN THE ADIRONDACKS.

     THE TRUE FABRIC OF THE SMALL TOWNS ARE AND WILL BE MOVING TO MORE AFFORDABLE STATES IN ORDER TO SURVIVE. 

     GONE WILL BE SMALL BUSINESS AND SERVICES THAT HAVE BEEN THE HEART OF THE NORTHERN COUNTIES.

 

 FROM ULSTER COUNTY;

THEIR HOUSEHOLD INCOME IN 2006 WAS $45,029.00 AND THEIR TAX BILL IS $21,418.00.  IMAGINE PAYING 48% OF YOUR INCOME TO STAY IN YOUR HOME………..

 

FROM FRANKLIN COUNTY;

ONE COUPLES HOUSEHOLD INCOME, $58,000.00, THEIR PROPERTY TAX, $12,274.  THAT’S 22% IN 2007.

 

FROM CAYUGA COUNTY;

THE $21,700.00 THAT BILL H. PAYS IN PROPERTY TAX IS 43% OF HIS HOUSEHOLD INCOME OF $50,210.00.

 

FROM OSWEGO;

THEY ARE DROWNING, WITH NO RELIEF IN SIGHT.  COUPLE PAYING 43% IN TAXES AND THEY CANNOT SELL THEIR HOME.

 

MORE FROM ULSTER COUNTY:

S.B.AND M.S., A COUPLE BRINGING HOME $77,000.00, SOUNDS GOOD UNTIL THEY PAY OUT $17,282.41 (22.4%) IN TAXES.

 

FROM SCHROON LAKE;

GENTLEMAN SAYS HE USED TO BE A HARD WORKING MIDDLE CLASS RESIDENTOF THE STATE.   NOW, THANKS TO TAXES,  HE’S  CAN CONSIDER HIMSELF TO BE ALMOST IN THE POVERTY CLASS.  HE STATES THE THE STAR CHECK HE RECEIVED WAS AN INSULT.

 

A MAN AND WIFE RETIRED 9 YEARS AGO TO THE ADIRONDACKS, BOUGHT A LOT AND BUILD THEIR OWN HOME.  THEY WANTED TO LIVE THE REST OF THEIR DAYS HERE. 

THEIR TAXES HAVE RISEN 14% A YEAR FOR THE PAST 9 YEARS,   THE ENTIRETY OF  THE WIFE’S SOCIAL SECURITY GOES TO PAY THE SCHOOL TAX, AND THAT DOES NOT COVER IT.

THEY WANT TO KNOW “HOW CAN SENIORS (ON A FIXED INCOME)  CAN BE EXPECTED TO PAY SUCH A GREAT PERCENTAGE OF THEIR  HARD EARNED INCOME IN PROPERTY TAX?”

THEY ANSWER THEIR OWN QUESTION THIS WAY—–

“THEY CAN’T” !
