Unshackle Upstate, a taxpayer advocacy organization, released a statement following the announcement that the property tax cap would be extended for four years.

Greg Biryla, Unshackle Upstate executive director, was pleased that the cap had been extended but disappointed that it wasn't made permanent.

Biryla's statement follows in its entirety:
Unshackle Upstate fought hard to advance a strong property tax cap in 2011 and proudly continued that fight this year. While we are disappointed that taxpayers have been denied a permanent cap, we are pleased that it will be extended through 2020. The tax cap has saved property taxpayers $7.6 billion since it was first enacted, and it will continue to save them billions more over the next 5 years.

In addition, we remind lawmakers of the need to address the problem of New York's sky high property taxes by enacting meaningful mandate relief. It seems that the effort to provide real relief to local governments, school districts, businesses – and ultimately taxpayers – has stalled.
