ALBANY, N.Y. – Governor Andrew Cuomo continued to push his plan to cut property taxes Tuesday as the deadline to pass an on-time budget approaches.
Cuomo was in Utica Tuesday morning touting the support of 175 elected officials from across the state who are in favor of his plan to freeze taxes in areas where local governments cut back and share services.
Homeowners in those areas would then be given tax rebates.
Cuomo, however, is facing backlash from his own party. The Democrat-led assembly's version of the budget dismisses the tax freeze in favor of Cuomo's plan where tax credits would be given to people based on their ability to pay.
