Carol A. De started this petition to Cuomo and

Currently Bay Ridge Brooklyn and Staten Island property taxes are assessed at least 200% higher than other districts in the borough.  We expect immediate reductions across the board to off-set rent increases to tenants and escalating expenses that are hand cuffing property owners small businesses and the community residents as a whole. 

We want action immediately to reduce taxes at least 25-30% to meet that of other districts in the borough.  Currently our mayor has a home in Park Slope assessed for 2019 for $4K at a value of about $2,000,000.  A comparable home in Bay Ridge or Staten Island will cost $15K same value.  We expect an immediate across the board reduction.  This includes coops, condos, etc.  These taxes get filtered down to tenants as well in non-rent control or stabilized dwellings cause homeowners cannot afford the increased carrying expenses.  The expense to small businesses is forcing them to close as you see everyday in the neighborhood.  Please sign this petition to help get action on this key critical issue plaguing our community.
