POTSDAM - The village has the highest effective tax rate in the north country, according to a new survey released Wednesday by the Empire Center For New York State Policy.

Potsdam’s “effective tax rate” which includes village, town and school district taxes, is $49.55 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, the Albany policy center reported. That’s nearly double the median tax rate of $24.78 per $1,000 for all north country municipalities.

The city of Ogdensburg had the second highest tax rate in Jefferson, St. Lawrence and Franklin Counties, at $49.47 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, the survey reported.
