New York City's Blooming Taxes

That's what I love about "temporary" taxes -- they ALWAYS become PERMANENT!!

"NYC cuts relief from property tax

NEW YORK - Mayor Michael Bloomberg said yesterday that he will eliminate two popular pieces of property tax relief because the city's economy is in distress and can no longer afford it. One of them is a $400 property tax rebate, which he said he would retain just six weeks ago. The other is a temporary 7 percent property tax break put into place last year. Bloomberg is also cutting hundreds of jobs."

Oh, that time the TAX BREAK was TEMPORARY!!

Nothing like fucking yourself, is there, New Yorker?
