The 2013 budget comes in at $55,919,315 – which is a decrease from the preliminary budget of $55,966,000 due to changes. The total town/village tax levy – $42,551,899 – is an increase from the 2012 levy of $41,543,155.

Regarding the mandated cap, Harrison Comptroller Maureen MacKenzie, Harrison Comptroller said "There are exclusions that are allowed by the state. There are exclusions for pension and there's also a growth factor that's calculated within their formula. We don't have any pension exclusions this year, but there is a growth factor."

The dollar increase for town taxes by estimated home value is as follows:

$250,000: $38.93
