Finch Skeptical of Cuomo’s Tax Code Overhaul

A statement by Assemblyman Gary D. Finch (R,C,I-Springport)
January 23, 2018

“The governor wants to rewrite our state tax code by April 1. This is the same administration that can’t send out school tax rebate checks on time. It’s not feasible. Real tax reform isn’t about accounting gimmicks, and it certainly shouldn’t involve new administrative burdens on small businesses, family farms and manufacturers. We have the worst tax climate in the country. We’re facing a $4 billion deficit. Our problems won’t be solved by convoluted, knee-jerk responses to policies coming out of Washington. For once, let’s address our financial problems with a simple solution: spend less money and provide middle-class New Yorkers with real tax relief.”
