Good Evening Everyone. I got my first Holiday Gift and it's was from New York City Department of Finance. They gifted me with a tax bill of $88. My property taxes had went up and instead of putting the extra $88 on to the amount I would owe them in June. They decided to bill me separately. I will say this to you New York City living is getting to expensive. Since I have two homes I live in one home and rent the other we have 2 tax increased bills that was sent to us. The other was about $90 for the one we live in and $88. was the rental home.
What would have happen if I didn't have the money to pay this. The city has a right to put a tax lien on your home for non- payment and they do it. I have seen pages and pages of property tax liens in my local newspaper. Some people are unable to pay their property taxes because the taxes in New York are just to high. So after not paying property taxes for a long time their homes block and lot number get's listed in the paper in the tax lien section.
This is one of the money surprised that people get and some have the money to deal with the surprise and some do not. That 's why I always believe in putting money away for money surprises like this. Because you never know when your going to get a money surprise that you have to pay. So what do you think?
