Lower East Side
The Lower East City Tax Division would like to inform you that there have been some changes in the division of property tax in the city. The Lower East Side Business District has the highest and biggest share followed by the city while a portion goes to the nature and forestry tax for the conservation of the stretch of forest that runs along Lower East and Upper East Side.
Other areas for improvement and maintenance are also included in the city legislators’ determination of tax and these are: road projects, park and playground improvements, improved museum halls, power savings initiatives and green earth initiatives. There are also other programs the city government is advocating like Strengthening Community Cooperation Programs, Young People’s Initiatives and Cause for Elderly Initiatives.
Thus, enclosed is the tax property receipt for the coming year 2010. I understand that in these hard times, it is difficult to pay property taxes. But your taxes will go to worthwhile investments for the benefit of the people in Lower East Side.
If you have further questions or doubts, my office is open to answer all your queries.
