This BS meant to fill someone's pockets..certainly not ours. Already gotten to the point the average hard working person in this county unable to afford much of anything. It's time for a "Tea Party" across the U.S., we are being taxed out of our homes.

RESOLUTION # 154 REQUESTING HOME RULE LEGISLATION TO EXTEND THE AUTHORIZATION GRANTED TO ESSEX COUNTY TO IMPOSE AN ADDITIONAL THREE-QUARTERS OF ONE PERCENT OF SALES AND COMPENSATING USE TAXES UNTIL NOVEMBER 20, 2015.
This resolution was offered by Ms. Montgomery-Corey and seconded by Mr. Canon and Mr. Morrow and adopted upon a roll-call vote as follows:
AYES: 2511 votes
NOES: 0 votes
ABSENT: 410 votes (Scozzafava, Boisen)

In short, all supervisor's voted for the tax increase. Two supervisor's were absent. Call your supervisor to voice your displeasure. It's our money that's being spent.

Tax increase is needed to help pay for welfare recipients that refuse to work a job. Many are dropouts that can barely read. Yes, they are producing babies, which increases their benefits.

Most counties(if not all)in NYS charge 4% on the NYS Transfer Tax. Essex County charges 6%. Hammering taxpayers one more time. Ridiculous!

Essex County charger 3.75% and wants to rais it to 4%. Still is a tax, supposed to offset the property tax, but will just be more money for the county to waste.

NO sales tax on clothing items costing $100 or less! Much better selection of stores, including grocery stores. Great farmers markets this time of year--good food, some organic, if you prefer that kind of food. Gas is cheaper!

Do what everyone else is doing--Ditch New York altogether!

Whew! You said it! Essex county, poorest county in NYS outside of NYC. Welfare rates very high, unemployment /not many employment opportunities/poor wages. Etown employees way over paid, especially judges, who dilly dally with all paperwork and let'em all off too easy/hold up divorces/don't work long enough hours for that kind of money.

The taxes have to be raised in this county to take care of all the people on welfare. This county is the poorest in all of NY state, with more people collecting social services. People that own homes in this area pay high taxes for what they own. It's a really sad depressed area for sure.

Yes, they do! And, in large part, you can thank the school district for that.

They got us over a barrel.

Shopping in VT only really saves you $$$ if you drop over $1K per trip.

Not if you grocery shop, buy gas, do other shopping (clothing, housewares, car repairs, etc.) and possibly a medical appointment--I will NOT see a NY doctor unless I travel all the way to Albany. MANY people drive over the bridge just to fill their cars and trucks up with gas because it IS worth it.

Do the math.Traveling the extra miles to save 10 cents per gallon does not make economical sense nor does it help the economy of the businesses in this county.Seriously why use $1.80 in gas to get to Vermont to fill a fifteen gallon tank that maybe 10 cents cheaper.That's right you just drove 10 extra miles at the minimum and lost 30 cents while thinking you just saved yourself a bunch of money.All you did was to deprive the local businesses of your money which in turn means less tax revenue which we are now being asked to make up.Traveling to Vermont and doing all your shopping and filling the tanks may save a few dollars but in the end we are only hurting our own economy here.

If you know where to get the gas, it's a LOT cheaper than 10 cents a gallon! If you are shopping in Vermont anyway (Ti has NO grocery store), then why not get gas, too? If you can buy clothing that is tax free (each item $100 or less), why not? Because you morally owe your paycheck to those employed by Essex County or the welfare queens of Essex County? Aren't these people screwing you enough, or you would like more???

You're completely deluded if you think your money is "helping" your community--your community is much bigger trouble than that. I'm not saying that it is your fault because it is certainly the fault of all the government entities that have been making very bad fiscal decisions and squandering taxpayer dollars for decades now. Not to mention the hundreds of people who have been living off the system for generations.

Okay, I'll give you a BIG, CLEAR example: For Ti taxpayers, should you be paying for the education of the school superintendent??? No, of course not. But, you are! Still.
