Default According to me

I think they just want to show the one eyed guy as the king among blinds. Well the issue is as a whole New Yorkers are paying a lot in taxes. Now they want to show how good is long island compared to rest of NY but how good are we compared to rest of US ?

What does the tax rate of Schenectady have to do with Long Island? The article says that Schenectady is the highest among the capital region. You can't compare their tax burden to ours as the regions are totally different. This should be moved to the upstate forum, if one exists.

May be it should go to general NY forum. But there is comparision of taxes by region and it says Long island pays the least in New York.

The image was messed up so i fixed it now.

SCHENECTADY Tops New York Region Tax Burden Ranking

Check the first image in the blog and it has chart, also there is link to seethroughNy database for checking your town taxes and compare to ther towns in long island. May be title should be changed for the link as long island pays least taxes.

Ok, the images are one way of measuring the property tax burden. But, I think measuring it based on a per house amount is a better indicator. Simply because some of the more expensive houses on Long Island really scew the average per assessed value. An example, a 800k home can have property taxes of 15k, but a 300k start home has property taxes of 8k.

If you look at some of the data you find that some of the poorest areas in Suffolk have some of the highest tax burdens in NYS. Do you feel those people are getting an equitable value for their tax burden? Central Islip schools are some of the worst on Long Island and their residents are paying some of the highest tax burden in the world. It's a seriously broken system, like the sides of the Titanic, and we seem to want to rearrange the deck chairs while the boat is sinking.

Long Island data is skewed because of that and the Million dollar housed in Hamptons. I wanted to show the 2 reports at the same time. If we were paying less in taxes then why would people leave. This report is basically published to tell people in long island before budget vote in may 17th that you guys are paying less its okay to vote YES. I say its not okay. We middle class in long island is paying a lot in school taxes. Also least in NY doesn't mean anything when you the best in the worst lot. We in NY paying a lot in taxes it doesn't matter where u live. This property tax hikes must stop.
