LEGAL NOTICE - NOTICE OF ADOPTION LOCAL LAW NO. 3 of 2018 A LOCAL LAW REPEALING THE MANDATORY AFFORDABLE HOUSING
The Town Board of the Town of Goshen has been reviewing the affordable housing stock in the Town, as well as the Town Code provisions requiring mandatory affordable housing. The Town Board has found that the law as it exists is unworkable, and does not necessarily result in providing homes that are considered affordable. In its review, the Town further found that, were the mandatory requirements omitted from the Town Code, there is still the opportunity for sufficient affordable housing to be constructed within the Town.

NYS DEPT. OF TAXATION & FINANCE – TOWN OF GOSHEN ASSESSOR’S EXEMPTION IMPACT REPORT
Section 495 to the Real Property Tax Law requires counties, cities, towns, villages and school districts to attach to their tentative/preliminary budgets an exemption report.
Exemption reports will provide taxpayers, policy makers, media and the general public with greater transparency on property tax exemptions and their effect on overall property taxes.
Exemptions are reductions in property taxes granted to certain groups of property owners (e.g., non-profits, seniors, veterans) and are paid for by increases in property taxes on all other taxpayers (except for the STAR exemption, which is funded directly by New York State).
