Assemblywoman Gunther Statement on NYC Commuter Tax

Monticello, NY – In response to Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer’s proposal to resurrect the New York City Commuter Tax, Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther released the following statement:

“The proposal to bring back the New York City Commuter Tax is yet another attempt to subsidize New York City’s mass transit system on the backs of Hudson Valley residents. To ask commuters paying upwards of $4 a gallon of gas, in addition to exorbitant tolls for roads and bridges to again reach into their pocket to support people commuting from Queens to Manhattan is unconscionable. It’s the MTA Payroll Tax for individuals, and it simply cannot be allowed.”
