Relief should be based on household income

I think families with a combined income of $100,000 or less should get more property tax relief than those making over that amount.

  1. I think the wording of the question is misleading..the Om nibus circuit breaker as exemplified by Senator Krueger's bill S4239 gives relief the FIRST year to people making 100,000 and under...but it phases in relief to families making up to 250000.....reduce the percent of everytone's income (250,000 and below) is the correct question to ask...this is an actual bill...and the bu7rden doesn't fall on any other property tax payer....the state picks up the costs of vital services as i8t should.....

    nobody is suggesting a circuit breakere that stops at 100,000...it's a bad i8dea and a bad question....

  2. I THINK ALL MIDDLE INCOME NEW YORK FAMILIES ARE ENTITLED TO TAX RELIEF, BUT THOSE WHO ARE PAYING THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF THEIR INCOMES IN TAXES SHOULD NOT BEAR THE GREATEST BURDEN. UNDER THE KRUEGER CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL S 4239, PEOPLE WHO RENT WILL ALSO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A TAX CREDIT.

    TO SEE HOW THIS WILL AFFECT YOU, GO TO: www.nyspropertytaxreform.org. THERE YOU WILL FIND A CALCULATOR. PUT IN YOUR STATISTICS, (NO NAME AND NO PERSONAL INFORMATION) AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE HOW THIS BILL WILL HELP YOU. IMPORTANT, BE SURE TO GO TO THE 4TH YEAR FINDINGS TO GET THE FINAL RESULT, AS THIS KRUEGER CIRCUIT BREAKER BILL GIVES IMMEDIATE RELIEF BUT IT WILL BE EVEN BETTER IN THE 2ND, 3D, AND 4TH YEAR AFTER IMPLEMENTATION.
