Court decision regarding fiber optic cable

New York State’s top court, the Court of Appeals, issued an opinion last week holding that fiber optic cable is taxable real property. We’re reviewing the opinion and its implications for real property tax administration. Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming weeks.
