Last week, Comptroller Tom DiNapoli released a report which finds that the number of counties that have overridden the state’s real property tax cap has declined from 15 in 2012 to 6 in 2015.  It also finds that the counties’ average tax levy increase has remained at or below 2 percent in each of the past four years.

Now that state lawmakers have extended the real property tax cap through 2020, we look forward to at least five more years slow property tax growth.
