Groups Call for Creation of Promised Tax Reform and Fairness Commission
Urge Inclusion of Local Taxes
ALBANY, NY (05/22/2012)(readMedia)-- Members of the Omnibus Consortium (a coalition of tax reform organizations from across NYS) will call upon the Governor to create a Tax Reform and Fairness Commission as he had promised on multiple occasions. The groups are concerned that the Commission, as outlined by the Governor, has yet to be enacted, will not include property taxes and will only focus on state taxes.

Members of the Omnibus Consortium (a coalition of tax reform organizations from across NYS) called upon Governor Cuomo to create a Tax Reform and Fairness Commission as he has promised on multiple occasions. After the December 2011 tax law changes were enacted, during the State of the State and at his budget address the Governor stated that he would issue an Executive Order to create a commission that would look at issues of tax fairness in our state. The Governor said the Commission would examine sales, income and corporate taxes.
