HOYLMAN STATEMENT ON NFL’S DECISION TO END ITS TAX EXEMPT STATUS

Hoylman: “This is a Touchdown for Taxpayers"

NEW YORK - State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan) said: “This decision is a touchdown for New York taxpayers. I’m pleased the NFL decided today to end the charade of being a tax exempt organization and start paying its fair share of taxes. It defies common sense that an organization with $10 billion in annual revenue and a chief executive paid $44 million a year -- more than most Fortune 500 companies --would be considered a non profit entity. The NFL has joined the ranks of the NBA and Major League Baseball by voluntarily relinquishing their tax exempt status and it was prudent of them to do so before being mandated by the state and federal government."

Ortt Co-Sponsors Bill to Help Taxpayers Passes in Senate

State Would be Required to Pay Tax Refunds Within 30 Days of a Return Being Filed

Wait times for state income tax refunds could now be cut in half following a bill that was passed in the New York State Senate. Senator Rob Ortt (R,C,I-North Tonawanda) co-sponsored the bill (S1782) that would speed up the delivery of state refunds owed to taxpayers. Many taxpayers who file their return typically wait up to two months before receiving a refund from the state Department of Taxation and Finance (DTF).
