WESTCHESTER SENATE CANDIDATE DR. LIVIU SAIMOVICI CALLS ON COUNTY AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO CANCEL PENALTIES
FOR DELAYED PROPERTY TAX PAYMENTS

With families struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus crisis, local and county governments should not be levying penalties.

Purchase, NY–April 15th… Dr. Liviu “Dr. Liv” Saimovici, the Republican and Conservative Party candidate for New York’s 37th State Senate District, called on Westchester County and local governments to cancel all penalties for non-timely property tax payments.

“It’s absurd that county and local governments are looking to levy penalties on economically-distressed homeowners for late property tax payments during the coronavirus crisis,” said Dr. Liv. “Local and county governments should be focused on making things easier and more affordable for struggling families during these trying times.”

Dr. Liv continued, “Canceling the penalties on delayed property tax payments is a first step and an important one that every government should take. By passing resolutions that cancel these penalties, Westchester County and other local governments can provide real, salient relief to each and every Westchester family that has been impacted by the coronavirus.”
