Taxes Will Increase 18 Percent in Head of the Harbor

Newsday reports residents will face an increase of more than $300 in 2013.

Residents of Head of the Harbor will pay 18 percent more in taxes in 2013 than they did in 2012 – a jump of more than $300 – according to a report published Dec. 30 in Newsday.

The village, some of which is on the tax rolls in the Three Village Central School District, is facing declining revenue and increasing expenses, mayor Natale Tartamella told Newsday.

Combined with rising costs for things like health insurance, fire protection, and state benefit contributions, the village also saw its revenue decrease by about $400,000 due to some residents' successful assessment challenges, and is projecting a drop in justice court fines as well.

According to Newsday, the village's $1.63 million budget is a 5.9 increase over its previous $1.54 million budget, made possible by a village resolution that allowed the village to exceed the state cap on tax levy increases.

Ya...we got a letter not too long ago that said... "Good News. You successfully grieved your taxes and your taxes have been lowered to $21,000." (woopie) A week later we got a letter stating that unfortunately due to rising costs (basically poor management of our tax dollars) we have had to increase the tax rate. Blah blah blah. Same story; different channel.
