STATEMENT BY SENATE MAJORITY LEADER DEAN SKELOS

The personal income tax surcharge is dead.  It died at the end of March, when the Legislature approved a new state budget that did not extend it; a position supported by Senate Republicans and by Governor Cuomo.

Senate Republicans will not support any renewed efforts by the Assembly Democrats to extend the PIT surcharge.
