State Senator Joe Griffo launched an effort for residents to sign his new on-line petition urging the rejection of Federal budget proposals that would cost New York taxpayers billions of dollars annually. Griffo stated that for decades, there has been a major imbalance between what New York sends to Washington each year, and whatthe state gets in return from the Federal government. New Federal budget proposals would worsen this imbalance by ending a longstanding policy of allowing taxpayers to deduct their state and local tax liability, including property taxes, from their federal taxes. Estimates show that the measure would result in a nearly $15 billion tax increase for New York families, an average increase of more than $4,500 per taxpayer. The average Federal tax bill for affected taxpayers would increase 30 percent. The Senator also pointed out that the Mohawk Valley and North Country would be hit especially hard by the misguided proposals, with more than 66,803 taxpayers being saddled with an average new tax increase of $2,350. The petition to oppose this Double-Tax Plan can be found on the Senator's website at www.griffo.nysenate.gov.
