New York State Property Tax Cap Will Be Under 1 percent In 2017

In July of 2016, New York Comptroller Tom DiNapoli announced that local governments in New York State may only raise their property-tax levies by no more than 0.67 percent unless they vote to override the state’s cap. This is a slight decrease from 2016. Currently, the cap for local government in the state of New York is 0.73 percent this year, and thus will remain below 1 percent again in 2017.
