As a condominium owner, I was disturbed to read in my morning paper about a bill (A4588-A, S-1706-A) that will likely increase the share of property taxes paid by condominium and co-op owners in Westchester County. I see no good reason for altering the longstanding property tax status of condominiums and co-ops. The bill has passed the state assembly and is pending before the state senate. Hopefully the current deadlock in the state senate will prevent passage.
It was particularly annoying to read that my state assembly representative, Sandra R. Galef (90th district), was a cosponsor of the bill in the assembly and my state senator, Suzi Oppenheimer (37th district), is the main sponsor of the bill in the state senate. Something I will remember come election day.
