Andrew Cuomo and Democratic members of the state Assembly and Senate, prompted politicians to hold off any tax increases until after the state and New York City have more completely recovered from the pandemic and employees return. They say the pandemic increased inequality in New York and greater taxes on business and high earners are required to fund social programs and reduce the wealth gap.Yet New Yorks budget picture has improved recently. The state is set to get $12.5 billion in unrestricted funds from the federal stimulus expense and New York State Director Robert Mujica stated the stimulus funds and stronger-than-expected tax earnings would enable the state to prevent organized budget cuts.The group stated it comprehends the “urgent human requirements” and injustices exposed by the pandemic however that proposed tax increases or modifications in policy must come after New Yorks recovery.
