Cuomo: NY to sue over Trump tax law

January 4, 2018

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Wednesday that his state would sue over the new tax law, which he has said could harm his state through its limit on the state and local tax deduction.

“We believe it is illegal, and we will challenge it in court as unconstitutional,” Cuomo said during his State of the State address. He called the law “the first federal double taxation in history, violative of states’ rights and the principle of equal protection.”

The new tax law caps the state and local tax (SALT) deduction at $10,000, which has been a particular concern for elected officials in New York and other high-tax states.

“Washington’s tax plan now uses New York and California as piggy banks to finance tax cuts for Republican states,” Cuomo said. He added that the law could cause people to leave New York and could make it harder to attract new businesses to the state.

    I have subsidized other states with my federal dollars long enough! If their people are paying too much for state and local taxes then do the democratic thing and cut spending. Why should I have to pay their taxes? Thank you RNC.
