State Sen. David Carlucci (D) is introducing legislation to delay the property tax deadline to Dec. 31.
He released a statement saying, in part, "Unemployment and underemployment rates are skyrocketing, and many New Yorkers and small businesses are struggling to pay their bills. We do not want residents having to choose between property taxes and medical care, prescription drugs, or food."
Residents and small businesses would not incur any late fees.
Carlucci’s proposal differs from the legislation Westchester County Executive George Latimer signed yesterday in that Carlucci’s legislation would extend the deadline beyond July 15, 2020.
Rockland and Westchester counties have some of the highest property taxes in the nation, averaging more than $17,000 when including school and local property taxes. Further, the president’s $10,000 SALT deduction cap has put a significant burden on homeowners.
