Top Story

The Business Council is submitting testimony today on the Executive Budget’s business tax reform proposals to a joint hearing of the Senate Finance and Assembly Ways and Means Committees. Our testimony focuses on support for Executive Budget provisions related to corporate tax restructuring, tax rate reductions, a new manufacturers’ real property tax credit, and enhanced phase-out of the Section 18-A energy assessments. In doing so, we cite our recent PPI/Ernst & Young study on the positive economic impact of business tax reform. We also submitted an overview of other Executive Budget provisions of interest or concern to Business Council members. Our final summary is available here. Staff contact: Ken Pokalsky
