Call To Action: Tax Cap Reform Update

One of NYSSBA’s top priorities in the 2016 legislative session has been to secure common sense reforms to the property tax cap including:

  • Making the allowable growth factor a consistent two percent (A.9026, Schimel)
  • Counting BOCES capital costs in the capital exclusion (S.6640, Murphy / A.9183, Galef)
  • Including PILOT properties in the tax base growth factor (S.1151-B, O’Mara / A.3611-A, Morelle)
  • Preventing negative tax cap limits (S.7178, Seward and A9792, Lupardo))
  • Redesigning the tax cap override process (S.5877-A, Croci / A.8136-A, Thiele)
  • Accounting for enrollment growth in the tax cap calculation
