BRABENEC: TAX FREEDOM DAY AN EMBARRASSING REFLECTION OF NYS POLICIES

Assemblyman Karl Brabenec (R-Deerpark) issued a statement on Tax Freedom Day, May 9 

“Taxes are a form of legal theft- plain and simple. New York’s Tax Freedom Day is shamefully third-to-last in the country, meaning that it takes our families over four months each year to pay off their collective tax burden. New York doesn’t have a revenue problem, it has a tax and spend problem, and state leaders routinely use this as a mechanism to further their political profiles on the backs of our families, and that is insulting. I will continue to fight for lower taxes and spending until the desire to live and work in New York outweighs the financial incentive to live elsewhere.”

Assemblyman Brabenec represents the 98th District, which includes the towns of Deerpark, Greenville, Minisink, Warwick, Tuxedo, Monroe, and Ramapo
