Southampton Village Latch Application Seeks 24 Units On 5.5 Acres Of Land

Beware of these sleepy mom and pop businesses.

Marriot could buy the place, demolish all the structures, and re-build a 67 room hotel, with bar/restaurant/meeting rooms, etc...operating year round." Sep 30, 17 6:25 AM

Elie Tahari Puts Sagaponack Home On Offer For $45 Million

Are we looking at the same house?

I see post-and-beam architecture--probably reconstructed barn?

Nothing about that type of construction which allows for a "quick evacuation"
of the crew--especially when nails aren't used.

Where are the 2x4's?" Oct 7, 17 11:09 AM

Dr. Gobler Includes Fertigation In Updated Environmental Report On 'The Hills'

East Hampton Village May Silence Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers

Check out some of these gated communities in Fla. And Arizona.

Paint color on your house?? They'll tell you matte finish or semi gloss!
No gas leaf blowers, no yard sales, no unapproved landscaping, no Christmas lights after Jan. 25 (for real!!),
no, no, no...!!
You violate, and some rent-a-cop on a golf cart comes around and writes you up.

And yet, people paying big bucks and fighting to get into these places, just like they're fighting to get into over regulated Sagaponack and EH Village.

Why is that?" Nov 4, 17 7:30 AM

UPDATE: Zeldin Votes No On GOP Tax Bill In House Thursday

It's called "catch and release"

They caucus behind closed doors to make sure they have the required votes to pass...then they "release" votes from districts which would be negatively impacted, so the local legislator can strut around telling his constituents how he bucked the wishes of his party in favor of the interests of his district.

Then the local voters write wonderful things about him in the local news feed as they prepare themselves to watch the value of their homes drop 30%." Nov 14, 17 6:15 AM

South Fork Homeowners Prepay 2018 Property Taxes In Large Numbers To Avoid New Deduction Cap

My prior comment was removed because I included a link from Thursday NYT article explaining why you cannot deduct any property taxes beyond the current municipal tax warrant which was mailed out early Dec. of this year.

If you choose to do so, make sure you check the "Audit This Return" box on the front of your 1040." Dec 29, 17 8:12 AM

From today. Dec. 29 front page article from NYT:

"The I.R.S. memo, however, threw many of those efforts into question. The memo said that property taxes paid this year would be subject to the old 2017 rules — but only if the taxes are actually assessed in 2017. That means that payments based on estimated assessments, or for years further in the future, probably would not qualify for the deduction."" Dec 29, 17 8:18 AM

it's a slippery slope. The editorial staff would then have to be in a position of weeding out links to legitimate news sources (NYT, Wall Street Journal, etc...) to the thousands of crackpot sites that now dominate the web." Dec 29, 17 8:21 AM

It appears from the article that assessments have nothing to do with your ability to pre-pay 2018/2019 taxes.

Unless an official bill for that period has been generated (it hasn't), you are not allowed the deduction for future taxes.

I'm sure IRS computers are being set to flag returns where property tax deductions exceed some threshold from prior year deductions (25%, 30%..?)" Dec 29, 17 2:46 PM

New Offshore Drilling Proposal Could Hit Close To Home; Zeldin Voices Opposition

"Little Lee"?--I like that!

Sounds like a term the VSG (very stable genius) would use.

Probably going to make a big appearance in the upcoming election" Jan 10, 18 6:24 AM

Six Democrats Campaign For Chance To Challenge U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin In November

You're kidding me--right??

$10,000 cap on Stand and local tax deductions???

We had 60K deductions last year with real estate and our NYS income?" Feb 21, 18 8:10 AM

The question was if anyone was "harmed by the new tax laws"--not what we thought about State and local taxes! The question was asked--and I responded...

The first Federal taxes were enacted in the 1860's to fund the Civil War and allowed for deductions of any local duties imposed on taxpayers, recognizing the inherent unfairness of double taxation. That principle has been upheld for the last 150 some odd years until the Republicans decided to stick it to the blue states.

Guess how this conservative, registered Republican is going to vote next election?" Feb 21, 18 3:52 PM

UPDATE: State Assemblyman Fred Thiele Jr. Weighs In On Sand Land Contamination

The golf course has been surrounded by test wells and under constant monitoring for the last 20 years.
It was a condition of their approval." Mar 11, 18 6:34 AM

How do you propose the Town monitor what is applied to tens of thousands of lawns?" Mar 12, 18 6:59 AM

Southampton Town Board Reserves Land For Proposed Hampton Bays Aquatic Center

A referendum is a good idea. Interest rates are at historic lows, and the Town has an excellent bond rating. If the public supports this, a bond referendum could be put on the Nov. ballot
