stop the tax shiftThe New York State Conference of Mayors created a single-issue website, to defend taxpayers from tax shifts that may be pushed from the state onto cities and villages.

This website is intended to help state and local officials, the media and the public better understand the direct connection between state actions – e.g., state aid and state mandates – and New York's real property tax burden. Local officials and private citizens can and should use this site as a resource to help educate state leaders, legislators and opinion makers on those state mandates that are the key culprits in obstructing local officials efforts to control spending and property taxes.
