Stephens Supports Bill To Permanently Offset Property Taxes For State-Owned Lands In Putnam
Assemblyman Willis H. Stephens announced his support last week for a bill, originally proposed by Gov. George Pataki, that would provide state aid payments to Putnam County to offset the loss of real property taxes on state-owned land. The aid would be based on the local tax rate in any given year and the most recent assessments of those lands.
