Explore New York Spending and Taxes with Budget App

The Empire Center’s unique online “Explore Your State Budget” app has been updated to reflect data in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposed Executive Budget for the 2019 fiscal year, which begins April 1.

The database of New York state budget information at SeeThroughNY.net includes actual results, estimates and projections for major spending and tax categories from 2012 until fiscal 2022. In addition, the tool contains total annual disbursements dating back to 1984 and tax receipts in major categories since 1976.

Historical spending and tax data are presented both in nominal and inflation-adjusted terms. In addition, data can be downloaded and saved by users in spreadsheet form.

The direct web address for Explore Your State Budget is SeeThroughNY.net/nysbudget.
