Hello, School Tax Increase!

Here is the school aid run for Jefferson County extracted from the executive budget proposal. If the Governor's budget remains close to intact then school districts in Jefferson County will see a reduction of base school aid and most likely every taxpayer will see an increase in school property taxes.


Not only will we get to pay the numerous tax increases proposed by the Governor but also we will pay extra in school taxes. So, when the Governor and legion of politicians talk about shared sacrifice and pain, there will only be sacrifice of taxpayer's hard earned money and pain to them.

This is pretty much what we expected all along, isn't it PIV? Despite the lofty words, ie: lies and bs, there never was going to be a serious effort at cutting spending. Certainly not with our teachers union involved. Now we will just have to figure out how to pay a little more. Seems fair. I really have no problem with it. NYers deserve what they get. Next year will be even worse.
