Governor’s Team Admits Tax Increases on New Yorkers

A statement from Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R,C,I,Ref-Ballston)

Editor’s note: See testimony from Deputy Tax Commissioner admitting tax increase here

“This morning, Deputy Tax Commissioner Nonie Manion finally confirmed what I have been reiterating for weeks: the STAR freeze proposed by the governor is in fact, a tax increase. At a time when our residents are leaving New York State in droves, in large part due to burdensome taxation and regulation, this STAR freeze isn't going to help. We need to preserve the STAR program for our hardworking upstate homeowners, not freeze it.”
