Council's 'e-advocacy' website will help business urge Albany to expand tax reform

To support it's call for tax cuts, The Business Council has launched a new "e-advocacy" website. Through it, members can generate letters to key lawmakers and legislative staff urging tax cuts and tax code reform.

The site was developed after several months of research by Business Council staff and members. In that process, dozens of possible tax code reforms that would further improve New York's business climate were evaluated.

At the website, users can select up to 15 different tax reductions and reforms, and then automatically generate letters. These letters will be faxed to the sender's elected representatives, to legislative leaders, to lawmakers with relevant committee assignments, and to legislative staff.

In the process, senders can also opt to be kept up-to-date on developments in the ongoing effort to secure tax reductions and tax-code reform.
