Today as I drove to Greenwich CT to buy groceries it occurred to me that I should express my outrage on this site.
The closest stores to me are in Bedford Village. Next closest are Bedford Hills. But I choose to drive slightly farther to the Greenwich stores. Why? Because everything is 5 to 10% cheaper there. Isn't it a crazy irony that I have to leave NY and go to one of the wealthiest towns in the world--in CT--to get better prices?
Adherents of this site, of course, know the reason. Westchester's property taxes and sales taxes are considerably higher than those of Fairfield County. Our property taxes average 1/2 to 1% higher than Fairfield Cty. and our sales tax is more than 2 percentage points higher.
This being a year of change and hope, let's hope we can change this insane system and chop the taxes.
