Two parts of the Niskayuna district are being hit harder, Bourgeois said. In the Clifton Park area, homeowners are seeing their school tax bill go up by an average 8.23 percent and business owners face an even steeper 8.4 percent hike. In Glenville, it is hard to calculate the impact of school taxes because of a recent townwide property revaluation, said Bourgeois.
"The actual tax impact in Glenville depends on what happened to a specific property's assessment," the assistant superintendent said. "From the information we have received, it looks like the average assessment changed by about 58 percent and if the assessment on a specific piece of property went up by less than that, then the property owner will benefit on their tax bill.""
