As part of the 2014-15 State Budget, New York enacted a property tax rebate, commonly referred to as the property tax freeze. While Unshackle Upstate did not support the “freeze” because we felt that it merely kicked the can down the road while ignoring the fundamental cause of our high property taxes – burdensome and duplicitous unfunded state mandates – we certainly believe that property tax payers in this state should take advantage of any help being offered to reduce the cost of owning and maintaining a home in New York.
