    No, I pay separate school taxes, which are about .75 points of the 3.5% annual tax on my property. The separate town tax is about another 1 point - too high because we're paying for at least twice as many town cops as we need.

    What is NY spending the other 1.75 points of my property value on every year?

    I'm happy to pay the taxes directly to my district. I have a lot more control over how it's spent, as do my neighbors. I pay to subsidize the highly merged schools in White Plains, New Rochelle, Yonkers and Peekskill, which are somehow less efficient though highly merged.
