I thought before I post a new thread about the New York state property tax system. Let me first introduce myself. My name is Floris. I live in the small country that's called Holland or the Netherlands (not Amsterdam) I'm a 22 year old tax law student at the university of Leiden. What is the reasen why a dutch student wants to discuss the New York state tax system? The answer is a combination of my early visit to the United States in 2008, my research paper and the fact that there is something in that tax system that I can't see to understand. I hope people will help me to get me to understand that part so I write a paper which is true. Luckily tax isn't my only interest in the USA, I find your struggle with public healthcare, debts, political battles quite fascinating. And I hope the New York Ranger reach the NHL finals. Bye Floris.
