Governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing to make a property tax cap in New York permanent, saying he won’t sign a state budget unless it’s included.
"The highest tax in the state is the property tax and it is a killer," Cuomo said in a statement.
The governor launched a “No Tax Cap - No Deal” campaign ahead of the April 1st budget deadline. He said the property tax cap is needed to keep taxes under control.
"We want to reduce economic pressure on families by making sure government is not aggravating the problem with increased expenses. We're going to cut your state income tax and we're going to cap your property taxes so you know it's not going higher than 2 percent,” Cuomo said.
