State senators to try and ease property tax woes on Long Island
State lawmakers will propose new legislation in 2006 in an effort to ease property tax woes for Long Island homeowners.
The "Rebate New York" proposal, if approved, will allow homeowners in Nassau and Suffolk counties to receive a rebate check each year. The average homeowner would see a rebate of $300 in September 2006. That amount would increase over a three-year period.
The rebate program has the full support of the senate and will be introduced to the floor in the coming year.
