Dissolve Nyack and Save Millions, Feiner says

Fair tax advocate Irv Feiner says we have too much government — and that it costs Nyack property owners $1.9 million a year being an incorporated village. Feiner, who once was the subject of a Supreme Court case on free speech, says NY State politicians are ignorant of the findings of their own Suozzi commission, an appointed panel that studied high property taxes. Among those findings:

  • A 4 percent cap on all property taxes
  • Mandates paid by the state
  • The “circuit-breaker” that would protect low- and middle-income households when property taxes exceed a given percentage of their income

“Gov. David Paterson, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and former Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno agree that property taxes are seriously threatening to drive homeowners out of their houses,” Feiner writes in an opinion piece in the Journal News. “But they [can’t] agree to do anything about it.”
