Revenue growth from state and local sources will be limited for school districts in 2017 as the cap on property taxes and tax collections overall will take their toll, Comptroller Tom DiNapoli warned in an interview published Monday.

DiNapoli, speaking to the New York State School Boards Association, warned budget gaps over the next several years are possible, which he attributed to an increase in spending and declining tax revenue.

“We may have to be perhaps a little more conservative in our assumptions as we move forward,” DiNapoli told Kremer. “State budget gaps could be as high as $5 billion per year over three years due to increased state spending, decreased tax collections, and depletion of reserve funds.”

School districts have over the last several years seen increases in education aid from the state, and lawmakers and Gov. Andrew Cuomo this year agreed to end the Gap Elimination Adjustment for school districts.

But school officials continue to chafe under the state’s cap on property tax increases, which they have so far unsuccessfully lobbied to make less restrictive.

The cap is expected to allow for growth of less than 1 percent in 2017.

“Unless there’s a dramatic change in the economic trends, I don’t see that happening,” DiNapoli said.
