Find ways to cut our taxes in New York
October 20, 2020 by admin
The new federal tax cut plan has been released and our governor is not a big fan. The governor actually said the new federal tax plan hurts states with high taxes. Shouldn’t the question be why is New York state a high-tax state?We listened to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State speech and all we heard was expanding numerous social programs, (free tuition, universal pre-K, etc.). Our governor also said he wants to make New York the most generous state for the Extended Family Leave Act. Being taxpayers, we would like to know how all this is being paid for. Not once during his speech did he mention making necessary cuts to some programs or how we can cut wasteful spending.Our state is facing a $4 billion deficit. We think the goal of our governor should be trying to lower taxes so we don’t fall into the category of a high-taxed state. Then maybe we will have fewer people leaving the state.Mary FarstadWilliam FarstadBallston SpaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesGuilderland girls’ soccer team hands BH-BL first league lossEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?
