‘No Excuses’ push launched to help cut property taxes

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.--Governor Andrew M. Cuomo launched the "No Excuses" push to help pass proposed property tax cuts for New Yorkers.

The "No Excuses" push will include a new website featuring the plan on how to cut property taxes along with statements of support from elected officials and advocacy groups.

Governor Cuomo also outlined his plan to freeze property taxes for two years and create a "circuit breaker" that will provide tax relief based on a families ability to pay in January at multiple presentations.

Both programs are part of the Governor's plan to deliver $2 billion in tax relief.

"High property taxes have been the number one burden on New York's families and businesses. Right after I took office we capped property taxes to stop skyrocketing hikes that were driving people from this state. Now we need to lower property taxes and we need your help to do it," said Governor Cuomo.
