Plan Would Increase Tax Credits to Help Struggling Middle Class Families,
Restore STAR Property Tax Rebate Checks for Millions of New Yorkers
Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos and members of the Senate Republican Conference today unveiled the Family Tax Relief Act, a package of tax relief and reform measures designed to provide a major economic boost to New York’s struggling middle class families.
The Senate Republican 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 also restores the STAR property tax rebate check program to provide real and direct relief to millions of New Yorkers who pay some of the highest property taxes in the country.
From creating the historic STAR and Enhanced STAR programs, to enacting property tax rebate legislation, the Senate Republican Majority has consistently led the fight to provide hardworking families with property tax relief.
