Here It Comes: The New Normal, Higher Taxes, Drive Through Payments

Here comes the new normal! Are you ready for it?

New restrictions, higher taxes, and the evaporation of your rights all seem to be a part of the new normal in our post COVID-19 world.

What’s happening? What does it mean for you? What can you do about it?

Higher Taxes Already Being Rolled Out

We’ve been warning that higher taxes would be coming since coronavirus restrictions began hitting NY. Now they are here. It’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Long Beach just passed a new budget, with an almost 4% tax hike. This is on top of the recent countywide reassessments in Nassau, which have hammered property owners. Official estimates say this will only average a $142 increase, but most will see their bills go up far, far higher.

Brace yourself for more levels of tax hikes coming.

The state, county and cities and towns will begin proclaiming they have been burdened with extreme new expenses. They are already debating which public services to cut, while raising taxes on residents.

Say Goodbye To Help & Your Rights

With public and government meetings going virtual and behind closed doors, expect the public to have even less say in how public funds are spent and how much taxes are raised. Voting seems to be facing more challenges than ever.

Drive through tax payment booths could become permanent, making it even more difficult for residents and business owners to question, fix and debate their bills and assessments.

Without transparency, access to help or voting rights, expect it to become even more expensive on Long Island, while the service nosedives.
