Property Taxes & Your Vote

This week on Need to Know Rochester, examining possible solutions to high property taxes locally; plus, the week in local and state politics.

If you own property, you are paying some of the highest property taxes in the nation. Politicians are claiming all sorts of "fixes" - like property tax caps and income-based tax breaks. But what are those fixes, and will any of them really work? Erika Rosenberg of the Center for Governmental Research walks us through each potential solution...helping you get ready to head to the polls.

Also, in our weekly VoteUp NY segment, WXXI News Director Julie Philipp talks with Democrat and Chronicle reporter Jill Terreri about the week in local and state politics.
