Property Tax

I suggest we do away with all assessments and tax all residential properties at a flat rate. The flat rate could be done each town or state wide. Currently a property tax could range from $100 to $30,000 Eliminating the assessment would 1.- balance out low med and high income payments, let’s remember that each tax payer throughout the state receives the same basic items government, roads, utilities etc. 2.- There would ...more »

Start with being honest.

Admit that State health and pension plans are insufficiently funded. And the $ that was there, was borrowed and spent to cover annual shortfalls. This is a loaded gun pointed at future legislatures. We cannot continue to fund NYS Cadillac health and benefit plans when NYS is broke and massively in debt.

HIGH-PRICED BENEFITS

Why do the employees of a near-bankrupt state still have CADILLAC BENEFITS? My employer just recently 'saved' billions of dollars by cutting our 'Cadillac' medical insurance to that of the 'average worker'...why doesn't the state go to a 'high-deductible' plan as well?

Scheduling On Line Payments

I suggest that Online Services allow a taxpayer to schedule a date to pay taxes. This would make paying sales and income taxes easier.

Ribbon Cuttings for Maintenance

Okay fellow taxpayers, it's time to look in the mirror and acknowledge that part of the problem is us. EVERY State Legislator & State Senator prides him or herself on 'bringing home the bacon". Look at the mailings: here's Senator Smith at the groundbreaking for the NEW playground, nature walk, ballfield, library extension etc. Probably most of these endeavors do increase the quality of life for many but we have to say ...more »

WAKE UP

I have 4 friends that were stuck on the thruway in buffalo for over 12 hours - all with no food or water. Good ole' fat cat NYS did NOTHING to help them. Stop sucking our tax dollars and actually do something. Instead of waiting for problems to occur, then fix, be proactive. If the government was run by private businesses with their jobs on the line, this state would be a better place to live in.

The Division of Disability Determinations of the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance has an whole level of useless bureaucracy in the Grade 27 assistant managers. These Grade 27's have no real purpose in advancing the mission of the agency. They are assigned tasks in an ad hoc manner, tasks such as assigning claims to analysts and compiling lists of those who can perform overtime, tasks that would more effectively ...more »
