STATEMENT FROM SENATOR FUSCHILLO ON MTA PAYROLL TAX BEING RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL

 

“Today’s ruling that the MTA Payroll tax is unconstitutional is a victory for Long Island taxpayers. Having strongly opposed this job killing tax since its implementation by the Senate Democrats in 2009, and supporting its repeal in 2011, I am pleased that this latest positive step has been taken to alleviate this unfair and significant burden on businesses, municipalities, libraries and employers across Long Island. I applaud the Court for its decision and reaffirming what my Republican colleagues and I have long been saying; that the MTA payroll tax is unfair, unjust, and should never have been implemented." 


Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) is Chairman of the Senate’s Transportation Committee.
