MTA TAX RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL, BALL CALLS FOR RETROACTIVE REFUND
Brewster, N.Y. – 8/22/12 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C-Patterson) will be joined by Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell, Assemblyman Robert Castelli, NYS Senate Candidate Bob Cohen and others at a press conference Thursday morning in Yorktown to speak on the state Supreme Court ruling that the MTA payroll tax is unconstitutional.
“Since this tax was created, I have been fighting for a full repeal, and this ruling will allow us to make our 80 percent repeal a full repeal and on an expedited time frame,” said Senator Greg Ball. “I am so happy to hear that this job-killing tax was ruled unconstitutional, and now its time to demand a full repeal as well as a retroactive refund! I will be working with my colleagues in the legislature along with the Governor to expedite this process and finally repeal this horrific tax, the vampire of all taxes, for good.”
On August 5, 2010 Ball held a joint press conference with members of the Putnam County Legislature to announce it will be joining in the class-action lawsuit brought against the MTA by Nassau County. Click here to read more.
