Taxpayers to see possible tax break in 2019

CHEEKTOWAGA – New assessment information relating to the town’s sewer district has altered how much taxpayers could pay in 2019.

The Director of Administration & Finance, Brian Krause, says the change is due to the changes in the sewer assessments increasing.  The assessment numbers were not finalized in time for the town’s initial calculation.

Town residents will potentially see an increase of $17.38 rather than the $24.66 proposed; a difference of $7.28.

The tax bill for an average home in the town assessed at $100,000 will be $1,649.42.

The tax increase hovers right around 1% which is below the state’s 2% tax cap.

The overall tax burden on the residents could change however if the town board decides to modify Supervisor Diane Benczkowski’s proposed budget by adding or cutting additional appropriations.
