December 2, 2012 – About 25 percent of local governments statewide, including 10 in Monroe County, have indicated that they may override New York’s property tax cap in 2013. That figure is up from 19 percent at the same time last year, according to state data. In Monroe County, six fire districts, one library and three towns have voted to override the tax cap. About 1,575 taxing entities in New York — which includes fire districts and libraries — had filed their cap plans with the state Comptroller’s Office as of Thursday, or 58 percent of them. Of those, 387 said they planned an override.
