Wow! There are NO COMMENTS on this article? Either no one is reading it at all or they aren't reading to the end.

Very detailed and economically enlighting article about YOUR FEDERAL TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!

do you think hope this will change the trend of real estate in Schenectady? Do the city's HIGH tax values allows it to assess a lesser tax rate to collect the necessary revenues and NOT be in voilation of the Tax Cap! ?

let's have some discussion and citizen involvement on this subject:

Just open up zillow, put in your zip code .. see what has just sold in your neighborhood and REJOICE! at the above news snippet of rising home prices. After looking at the sale price, scroll down to see what the tax assessment is.

sad to say, if you don't like the school system and you want to sell/move .. well so does everyone else . .

read the Gazetter clip about real estate prices rising but don't get your hopes up ! it ain't happening in Schdy

read and weep: School taxes are likely to decrease when home values are properly reduced:

Just open up zillow, put in your zip code .. see what has just sold in your neighborhood and REJOICE! that Gazette published an article that Cap District R/E prices are rising! After looking at the sale price, scroll down to see what the tax assessment is.
