Senator Lee M. Zeldin Announces Next Steps in MTA Payroll Tax Repeal

Ronkonkoma, NY- New York State Senator Lee Zeldin (R, C, I- Shirley) updated a crowd of over 100 supporters, business owners, and members of the community on the status of his fight to repeal the MTA Payroll Tax.

The MTA Payroll Tax is a tax which was placed on every business, school, local government, nonprofit and hospital in Suffolk County, costing Suffolk County Taxpayers more than $163,636,074 since its inception 2009.

“Throughout my first 100 days in office, I have been working very hard to deliver on my campaign pledges and principles that sent me to Albany, and I will continue to do so,” said Senator Zeldin.

Join the Fight: Sign up to Dump the MTA Tax

On June 15, 2011, the Senate passed my MTA Payroll Tax repeal legislation (S.5596-A/A.8193-A) with a bi-partisan vote, 40-22.

The job-killing MTA Tax represents one of the worst ideas Albany has ever come up with. I originally promised, if elected, to secure passage in the Senate of a repeal of the MTA Payroll Tax and I did that this legislative session, with a very responsible plan.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver would not allow a vote on this bill in the State Assembly, despite bi-partisan sponsorship in his house. He is obviously not looking out for the best interests of Suffolk County taxpayers.
