Many residents have called me asking why their school tax bill has gone up. The following was prepared by the town assessor, Edye McCarthy. NYS has REDUCED STAR benefits.  They want to send residents a check for a smaller amount. Not only is this going to hurt taxpayers but there is also more administrative overhead---sending out checks requires additional personnel costs. I also think that the new policy is bad for school districts because taxpayers will be writing a check for a larger amount to pay for their school tax bill -before receiving a check in the mail.
