that's only because the area is experiencing a high growth rate. I wouldn't worry about it.

That's only because you don't live here yet . Anyone who does knows that it's one of the biggest issues in growing areas of the state right now after schools.

geez, I was merely just providing as an FYI -

Common sense and logic do tell me that areas of high growth and high traffic causes issues with the infrastructure. I was just passing it along.

I know, I was referring to NC Bound's comment. I'm sorry Weis, I wasn't trying to offend you.

After you move out, someone will move in. Only certain people can't afford it.

I mean..... that's not a very good attitude. It's true that 8k taxes are ridiculous. It's even more ridiculous when the taxes are 8k on a hosue that is 200k in Upstate NY, where the family wouldn't make NEARLY as much money as they would on Long Island. I must say that I am very worried; not for myself, for through house hunting I know that for whatever reasons, there are some really interesting instances where property taxes can be very low. But for the people in general, it's rough, and for upstate at least, it makes the job market tough. Not a lot of companies want to relocate to an area with very high costs. NYS has been handing out incentives and it has been working the last few years in startup companies in Upstate NY; but it's still not enough. The taxes in NYS DO need to go down. or at least hold steady while the rest of the country catches up.
