Gov. Andrew Cuomo has an emergency Executive Order to help protect property owners in NY from the impact of the recently passed federal tax bill. As a result, more people will choose not to itemize deductions on their 2018 federal income tax returns (filed in 2019) and will be unable to deduct 2018 property taxes.

Cuomo conceded that prepayment may be hard for some households, the outlet reported.

Geddes Federal Savings and Loan Association says its helping already-existing mortgage holders who want to pre-pay 2018 county and town property taxes from their escrow accounts.

Individuals and municipalities can benefit from an early payment of taxes this year before the newly-passed tax bill impacts expenditures for 2018.

"I have been asked many times about paying 2018 property taxes in 2017 to address the SALT limits of the new federal tax law", Mayor Phil Kramer said in an email statement to the media.


Cuomo's order also suspended local laws limiting the ability of taxpayers to make partial payment of property taxes until the end of the year. Payments are made to local municipal tax collectors.

Residents can also postmark tax payments on December 29 or 30 if they are seeking some pre-payment benefit.

"For those local government and school districts able to issue their warrants before the end of the year, we encourage them to do so", said New York State Budget Director Robert Mujica. "This legislation will revitalize the American economy, allowing us to compete with other industrialized nations and win".

Every congressional Democrat from NY voted against the bill as did five Republicans - Dan Donovan, John Faso, Peter King, Elise Stefanik and Lee Zeldin.
