You May Be Getting Refund From Erie County Mistake
You may be getting an extra refund check from Erie County soon!
There was a mistake in the calculation of college chargeback totals.
College chargebacks are costs incurred by municipalities when Erie County residents attend community colleges in other counties.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says he immediately ordered the Budget and Real Property Tax Divisions to prepare new tax bills for Erie County residents, and refund any overpayments to those who may have already paid their taxes", according to WIVB.
To the average tax bill, apparently there won't be much change. If you own a home about $100,000, you were overcharged about 6 dollars--that's about 6 cents per thousand.
