This issue has been covered to the point of ad nauseum, and no matter how the candidates who support this plan present it, the simple fact is that it does not work for Northern New York. The Senate candidates are back to debating the issue since the rebate checks have just been received. Aubertine is looking to take political advantage of people receiving the rebate check while his plan, if passed, would eliminate the check.
Unless the circuit breaker plan Darrel Aubertine is referring to in the paper is vastly different than the one he supported early this year that did not pass, he is wrong in his example cited in the paper.
He cites a family with an income of $50,000 that is paying $2,500 in taxes will receive $375 on its tax refund or tax credit.
The Assembly places a lower 5% of income paid in property taxes as a threshold while the Senate plan, supported by Aubertine but failed, had a threshold of 6%. And, both versions would only give you a 25% credit or refund on the amount paid over that 5 or 6%, while the Senate version eliminated the STAR rebate for middle class folks.
Again, Aubertine can cite downstate all he wants, but the program does not work for Northern New York residents.
Call the experst your local Real Property Tax department at your county or city to inquire specifically about your personal situation they will be able to assist you through the process and you will know whether it works or does not work. Do not accept the politicians rhetoric on this issue find an expert.
