Law Passed in Islip To Exceed Tax Cap

Earlier last week, the Islip Town Board paved the way for a massive property rate tax hike, voting unanimously to shatter the state-mandated tax cap amid fierce opposition from town residents.
After a long public hearing at Town Hall, the board passed the law. The 2% tax cap which is state-mandated requires local governments seeking to exceed it to pass a law authorizing the move. Last month a $118 million proposed budget was introduced that calls for 65% increase in town residential property taxes, which is 4% of residents total tax bill.
The proposed budget which calls for a 65% increase in property tax has stirred up much controversy in the community. Some residents are outraged by it, while others think it is necessary in order to maintain the town’s amenities.

New York States largest teachers union is planning a legal challenge to New York’s new property-tax cap. Richard C. Iannuzzi, president of New York State United Teachers, said that the union could file suit before the end of the year.

Iannuzzi believes that the requirement of a 60 percent “supermajority” violates constitutional “one person, one vote” protection that gives every person’s vote the same weight. He also believes the spending caps are making it extremely difficult or almost impossible for poor school districts to provide the “sound, basic education” that many schools are obligated to provide under NY state constitution.
