Property Tax Cap Information

Contrary to popular belief, the New York State property tax cap does not “cap” tax increases at 2 percent. Instead, schools must use a state formula each year to determine how much they can increase their tax levies by without having to seek a higher percentage of voter approval for the budget. This threshold may be different each year and must be determined by the District and submitted to the state by March 1st. Learn more here.
