On Tuesday, August 11th, Connecticut’s Primary Day, New Haven Rising, Local 34, and our allies engaged voters at every New Haven polling location on an issue affecting everyone; Yale’s Tax Break.
At the polls, we revealed the latest estimate of Yale’s tax break is now $157,722,490.96, up from $146 million last year.
As Yale expands and the value of their land increases, a rising mill rate increases the tax break even further thus creating a greater burden on every resident of the city.
Go to yalerespectnewhaven.org There you can see the value of the tax break that you individually provide to these institutions. While you’re on the site, sign our petition calling on Yale and Yale-New Haven Hospital to step up.
