It’s YOUR money: on-line petition to stop the withholding of tax refunds

    Dear Friend,

    You may have heard that the Governor is thinking about delaying the return of state income tax refunds. I think this is a bad idea and ask you to work with me to help him change his mind!

    I encourage you to sign an on-line petition on my website to get the tax refunds out the door as soon as possible. I will deliver the petition to the Governor in the next few weeks to let him know how we feel. Click here to sign our petition!

    Hardworking New Yorkers are counting on that money. Many people have plans for using their refunds. No matter what the situation is like in Albany, having the state hold onto this money is just not right. It’s not the state’s money—it’s YOUR money. It should be sent back to you as soon as possible.

    If we have to make tough choices on other fronts to reduce spending, let’s make those tough choices. We need to get taxes and spending under control. We must not engage in games and gimmicks, like withholding tax refunds, that are not going to solve our long-term, systemic problems.

    Please sign my on-line petition and encourage others to do so as well!


    Mike Ranzenhofer
    State Senator, 61st District
