Proposal Would Increase Tax Credits to Help Families & Restore STAR Rebate Checks to Provide Property Tax Relief
Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) recently announced his support for the Family Tax Relief Act, a package of tax relief and reform measures designed to provide a major economic boost to struggling middle class families.
The plan would increase tax breaks that have not kept pace with inflation, and, in some instances, haven’t been adjusted for more than 25 years. The plan would also restore the STAR property tax rebate check to provide real and direct relief to Long Island families who pay some of the nation’s highest property taxes.
