My property taxes on my Albany house went up $306. My house is vintage 1946; never been remodeled. No way could I sell it for the market value the county lists. Of course, we have the $159 million school bond to pay for — and the students can't even get respectable scores on the state competency tests. But they will soon have lovely new buildings to daydream in.
And, if Trump and the Repubs get their tax plan through, we soon won't be able to deduct state and "local" taxes.
Those of you who voted for Trump are getting what you deserve, but, unfortunately, the rest of us are bundled in with you.
