A-Rod Uses Loophole to Pay $1,200 Property Tax on $6 Million CondoFrom the New York Daily News:
Yankees star Alex Rodriguez will pay virtually no property tax for a $6 million apartment he is buying on the upper West Side. Rodriguez will be billed around $1,200 this year in real estate tax for his 3,000-square-foot, five-bedroom penthouse with spectacular views of the Hudson River. Over the next 10 years Rodriguez and his fellow residents will continue to receive huge discounts on their tax, a city housing official said. For Rodriguez, a full tax bill would be at least $60,000 annually, the latest city assessment records show.
