There is currently a property tax cap set at 2% or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. Some local governments such as Nassau County have circumvented the property tax cap by raising fees and adding speed zone cameras. Without this additional revenue Nassau County would be unable to balance its budget. Should NYS Government's 2% property tax cap also apply to fees and fines?
