I don't know if the OP is a Vet or not but I bought my house from a vet(there is no way of knowing) so I took a nice fat tax increase first year.

The STAR program is nothing.

The OP should also look at whats included in that taxes of each area compared to NJ. In this area garbage is not included (small bill) nor is water (MASSIVE bill).

For homes in Onondaga County, there IS a way to know. All you have to do is type in the address at ongov.net and it will give you all kinds of information and history about that home, including all the kinds and amounts of all exemptions that are applicable.

Our OCWA (Onondaga County Water Authority) bill is a pittance... and it actually went down this quarter, due to new billing changes... and the waste pickup is included with our village taxes.

This is why blanket statements aren't helpful and yes, I do get defensive when I see them made. Because they're not blanket truth... only true for the situation that poster is in. Maybe. :P

Then you and the other need to learn to present yourselves better.

State thing like this, "SOME parts of the Syracuse Metro area have reasonable water"

"SOME parts of the Syracuse Metro area include trash"

Because when you make statements like cheap water and free trash removal in the Syracuse Metro area when its only true in SOME areas it makes it seem like you either don't know what your talking about or do and are just lying.

That is for Oneida, but not for Onondaga County in many cases.

Yes, being a Vet helps.

I think when people are looking for homes or a place to live, it's largely going to be in Onondaga County and perhaps communities in other counties close to Onondaga County versus a community on the fringe of the metro like Oneida.

In terms of percentage of coarse but Oneida is a growing city within the Syracuse Metro.

But it is the fringe, I can literaly see the Utica Metro out my front window.

I don't make those statements, Sean. That's why I'm so specific. I can't say what water, trash, etc. are like in other areas because I've not been a homeowner there. I stay out of those topics intentionally... because I have no experience to offer.

Phish, are you coming by yourself or will there be others with you? That can also help you to decide where you want to be.
