NY Businessman Tom Golisano Launches Fair Property Tax Campaign

Jan 18, 2018

A three-time candidate for governor of New York says too many upstate property owners are paying too much in local taxes because their assessments are too high. Thomas Golisano, who founded the Paychex payroll company, has started a website for those who think their property assessments are too high. 

Golisano, who now makes his home in Florida, says a class action law suit is also being considered, because too many people upstate are selling their homes for less than the assessed value. Golisano spoke with WAMC’s Brian Shields about his efforts.
