Greene County property owners to get rebate

Nov 23, 2014 12:02 am
Ariel Zangla in The Daily Freeman reports Greene County property owners can expect rebates from New York state next year because the 2015 county tax levy increase fell within the state tax limit, according to County Administrator Shaun Groden. The amount of the rebates are unknown. On Nov. 19 the county Legislature adopted a $105,270,134 budget with Catskill legislator Vincent Seeley, voting against the spending plan. The adopted budget includes a 2.16 percent spending increase with $23,221,839 to be raised through property taxes, an increase of $795,811, or 3.55 percent, over the current tax levy of $22,426,028. Greene County estimates $28 million in sales tax revenues in 2015, a $1.4 million increase over what is expected this year. Groden said the county will cut spending if sales tax revenues fall, possibly through layoffs. Read the full story in The Daily Freeman.
