Let's see....Start-Up New York has spent about $200M in advertising and created about 400, 200,000,000 ÷ 400 = $500,000 per job, in case you were wondering. It's had to find exact spending numbers so I might be off. But the point still stands.

Veterans do not get half off of their county taxes. The rates for those exemptions are the same as posted in the article, that is what the alternative school tax exemption is based on.
