NYS $212 billion budget combined with new wealth taxes gets mixed reviews

Ron Deutsch, of the nonprofit New Yorkers for Fiscal Fairness, called the tax changes “long overdue.” “This budget makes historic investments in public services and puts the needs of the many over the needs of the few,” he said. “While we know there is still more work to do, these tax reforms are a great start in addressing New York’s worst in the nation income inequality and will begin to reverse a decade of austerity spending in our state.”
