Can someone please take the time to explain to me why the school tax in Pawling, NY is almost 50% higher than the surrounding areas. Am I missing something? We have lived in Pawling for a couple of years now & we love the area but just can not justify the taxes that the town expects from us. Do you just want people to come & go in this town or are you looking for good, honest, hard working people who want to stay in Pawling raise thier families & be involved in the town. There really is no way that anyone with a new home in this town or just recently purchased home can afford these taxes. Are there to many so called agricultural properties? The real farmers in this area ought to get together & protest these homes that claim they are farms. Does anyone ever get audited to find out how the money is being spent. I think it might be time for everyone in the town to join together & find out exactly why are taxes are so much higher than the surrounding areas. Maybe its time for a petition to go around to be signed by people who find that we are being unfairly taxed!
