Tax Cap Under Scrutiny

According to the Rockland County Legislature, the County Executive’s 2015 budget proposal has gone over the New York State tax cap by 100 thousand dollars. On Tuesday, a letter was sent to the budget and finance committee from the financial firm O’Connor Davies, which stated after a review of the proposal that the payments in lieu of taxes were claimed as 160 thousand dollars by County Executive Ed Day, but the correct number is 260 thousand dollars. The New York State Comptroller’s office recently approved the budget proposal, stating that the county will remain under the two percent tax cap. Day stated “We find the timing of this document’s submission to the media, asserting a 1/100th percent variance in the budge two hours prior to the meeting, extremely suspect.” The Legislature is set to vote on the budget at a 7:00 meeting tomorrow night.
