2004 LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM
TAXATION

Following is The Business Council's 2004 Legislative Program. It identifies priority issues to be addressed by the Committees and Councils during 2004.

The overall taxation policy of New York State must be to reduce our tax burden, the highest in the nation, to a competitive level. To advance this policy, state and local government leaders must restrain spending. In addition to the specific taxation policies below, The Business Council believes it is essential that the state eliminate the 2003 tax increases on schedule, if not earlier.
