Bill de Blasio Owes $660.62 And Is Fined $3.43 As A Late Fee
Lois Weiss, NY Post
It appears that the Bill de Blasio family was so busy running around campaigning for mayor that they forgot to pay their property tax bill.
The family’s quarterly payment of $660.26 for their Brooklyn home was not processed until Oct. 22, leading to an extra charge of $3.43 and a total of $ 663.69, according to Dept. of Finance records.
The slight blip in payments can be laughed off as an “oops” by a really busy family.
But taxpayers should be wondering why a home the city says has a market value of over $1.18 million has an assessed value of merely $15,823 and is only paying $2,641 this year after a state school-tax STAR exemption of $297.
That’s no joke when you think about the costs of city services and the tax bills paid by others with similarly valued homes and condos.
