Deadline Approaching To Skirt Tax Law

It's an end-of-the-year deadline for people who want to skirt next year's new tax law and the governor is behind it.

7 News reports that the new tax law signed last week by President Donald Trump caps state and local tax deductions at $10,000 dollars. If people choose to pay early, north country leaders want to make sure they know how. Cuomo signed an executive order last Friday that clears the way for people to get hold of those bills and pay what they owe in 2018 property taxes before the end of this year.

The tax law goes into effect on January 1. People who pay before then won't be subject to that $10,000 cap. Payments that are mailed in must be postmarked on or before December 31. There are also online options in some towns, but not all.

Payments need to be made out to the town you live in. All municipalities are getting ready to take in payments. Both the city of Watertown and Lewis County have sent out press releases detailing how to make those payments.
