Taxes, Golden Retrievers

Today's Ithaca Journal has a piece on taxes in Tompkins County, noting that assessments have gone up for many people as well as taxes. One comparison is especially interesting for Dryden:

"In the villages selected for this article, a Village of Dryden property went up 9.3 percent while its tax bill increased 16.2 percent. The Trumansburg property's assessment increased 2.2 percent, while the taxes increased 13.7 percent."

It looks from that like assessment increases were a bigger share of the tax increase in Dryden, while tax rate increases were more powerful in Trumansburg.That's just one house in each place, and it probably varies across houses here. It would be interesting to take a look at more properties and see what the patterns are overall.

Update: A correction notes that "The 2003 tax rates per $1,000 of taxable assessed property for the villages were: Cayuga Heights: 5.91; Dryden: 6.02; and Trumansburg: 4.47."

Also in Dryden, 4-H Acres hosted the Golden Retriever Rescue of Central New York Saturday night.
