Statement on Governor Cuomo’s Tax-Free Zones Plan from Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I – Fishkill)
“All New Yorkers need tax relief, not just a few well-connected companies located on college campuses. We don’t need scattered tax-free zones for a few companies; we need to lower taxes for everyone in the state. If the governor thinks New York’s taxes are so high that we need special, Albany-designated tax-free zones to attract businesses, why not just lower taxes across the board? Why eliminate taxes for a few companies, but not lower them for everyone else?”
“What makes these corporations more important than the small businesses already here? Why should New York’s struggling small businesses continue to pay high taxes, while the governor lets a few pay no taxes at all? Governor Cuomo needs to stop the gimmicks and lower taxes for all New Yorkers.”
