During the 2017 mayoral campaign, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis highlighted the inequities of the property tax system in which communities like Staten Island and Bay Ridge pay a much higher effective tax rate than other New York City neighborhoods, including Mayor de Blasio’s home district.
In July, Mayor de Blasio made a campaign pledge that he would convene a property tax commission to address the arcane and unfair system if re-elected. Additionally, the levy, which the Mayor and City Council set, has increased nearly 38% over the past four years. This translates to an additional $7 billion City Hall is seeking from taxpayers. It’s unsustainable and it’s driving middle-class families out of our city.
