Just glanced at my 2013 school taxes on mynassauproperty.com, another huge increase....wow.

Assessed value down considerably but as always, the tax rate per 100 is up to compensate resulting in quite big increase in my tax bill....so this tax cap in essence means nadda. Of course this will vary district by district but I am sure its pretty much the same everywhere.

We know the game but I guess we can never win.

I've been saying this for many years, even been posting about it for years..and everyone tells me I'm wrong
Your home could be assessed at .10 cents your still going to pay 6-7K in schoot taxes and a few grand more general taxes. Every where else in the country a lower assessment equals lower taxes.

With tax increase caps at 2%, the increase in your bill shouldn't be any more than 2-4% at max.

Changes beyond then imply loss of business or residential taxpayers shifting the burden.

The new system only intends to slow the tax increases down to a reasonable level, sadly with the economy not picking up at all- taxpayers are still footing the bill.

It depends on what commercial and other residential properties do in relation to your assessment. You can't make a blanket statement that 'no matter what your assessment does, your taxes will be higher'. Doesn't work like that. If my assessment went to 10 cents and everyone else in my SD stayed the same, I can assure you my tax bill will drop to almost nothing. If yours went down more in relation to the rest of your hood, they could (and do) go down. I've had that happen one year (amazingly) although they didn't drop by much and were after a sizable spike. Or if someone builds a skyscraper (lol) or say a mall in your district worth billions, that would also lower your taxes by quite a bit.

There's no getting through to the unions however. The only bright spots I see are enrollments are dropping 1-2% every year as people are having less kids. That combined with the 2% cap should hopefully control the school tax situation.

I just checked on my property and although my assessment is down slightly, my school tax increase raises my 2013 school tax bill by $955.00. That should bring my total 2013 tax bill to approximately $15,000 on a very "average" house. Insane!

This thread prompted me to check on our property. Per the site, it looks like our taxes went down $ 134 for 2013.

The property that I should close on very soon had a decrease in school taxes. The assessed value went down, the tax rate went up, but the drop in value had a greater effect and, therefore, the school taxes will decrease in 2013 relative to 2012.

I also looked up family members that live in Nassau County. All tax rates went up in 2013. Looks like my future home is an outlier because the drop in assessed value was pretty steep.

I think the SD Sea Cliff is in ... North Shore ... is planning to increase taxes because of losing some LIPA money. Something like that.
