Who is the real problem here?
From CBS 2:
New York state Gov. Andrew Cuomo is doing whatever is necessary to protect New Yorkers from increased federal taxes.
As CBS2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer reported, Cuomo also answered critics who charge that governor should start at home by cutting state taxes.
On Wednesday, the New York State Tax Department issued a report offering a raft of workarounds. They include:
• Restoring the deductibility of real estate and local taxes on New York returns.
• Increasing the state’s standard deduction;
• Changing the income tax to a payroll tax;
• Allowing taxpayers to make charitable contributions to the state instead of paying taxes.
And if the IRS tries to stop him, Cuomo said he would fight it.
“If we come up with a way not to pay, I’m sure they’ll attack it and they’ll challenge it – and I have no problem with that,” Cuomo said to Kramer. “I’m a Queens boy. I don’t back down, Marcia – you know that. You know me a long time.”
But there are those who say that instead of focusing on the loss of the so-called SALT issues – the deductibility of state and local taxes – Cuomo should also get his own house in order and cut spending and taxes on the state level.
(Dear Andy: Please stop reminding us that you are a product of Queens. Thank you.)

Labels: Andrew Cuomo, taxes
Let's tax flushing our toilets. The technology for this is here and now. Rates could be staggered for usage hours.
NY has the highest taxes in the nation, most regulations. Cuomo needs to stop playing the good guy on other people's money!
Cuomo and Crowley both seem deeply wounded on a psychological level that they're no longer the biggest Queens name in politics anymore.
Cuomo is full of shit. The state/city taxes are high, not to mention the tolls, fines, etc.
His response to the federal tax cut?
We can't have the proles keep their own money, so he came up with the "congestion tax".
An other communist extortion scam to fix the subway system? Really?
Where did the money go at the MTA?
Mario's son has lost his mind. He refuses to know his limitations and is trying to expand his gubernatorial powers. This shithead actually thinks he's president as that alderman pointed out (It's SALT not FALT) How about putting the kibosh on his Red Hook subway and new city plan for a start.
300,000 is middle class?! That shows how stupid and clueless establishment dum dems are.
Meanwhile, he wants to punish us for driving through Manhattan. He sucks. Hypocrisy at its best.
He can reduce NY taxpayers burden at the State income tax level, by making the Federal taxes a deductible item.
Please explain why, when you lived in Douglaston, you were a frequent flier at the 111 Pct. in connection with domestic violence complaints?
Andy Boy is trying to save us Federal tax dollars so he can lay claim to the money. What a pal!
Why are we trying to decrease the amount of taxes paid by our wealthiest residents? Isn’t this the same group our esteemed mayor is trying to tax? I guess it makes a difference on who Taxes the rich - it’s preferable if a democrat does, since they are more likely to redistribute to those who need it the least.
Taking my hard earned wages and giving it to able bodied people who collect uncontrolled benefits from the State on our dime !
Good work Andy !
Its not to protect us, Its to succeed from the federal government and eventually steal.
Federal laws are the only thing that has been preventing this son of a bastard from establishing imperial rule.
If he succeeds with this disobedience it will establish province to fast track Scandinavian socialism. Eventually tossing the whole US Constitution and have everything (including salary's, wealth, healthcare & property) controlled & mediated by local government cradle to grave.
We've taken care of everything
The words you hear, the songs you sing
The pictures that give pleasure to your eyes
It's one for all, all for one
We work together, common sons
Never need to wonder how or why
I don't want to gloat. I grew up in Forest Hills ( not Jamaica Estates like POTUS ). I love Queens and all of NYC ! Ten years ago I read the handwriting on the wall and escaped to FL.
I spoke to a dear friend this morning who has a home in Garden City. He pays 25K in property tax. Now he's limited to 10K by the Feds. What is Mario Junior going to do to address this issue other than obfuscate like his Dad taught him. Good luck, guys.....come on down !
Now Mario's idiot son wants to open the Statue of Liberty with out state tax dollars. Instead of using that money to allocate to NYCHA and the worst fucking transit system in the universe. It's absurd and unsustainable for working class people who drive for a living and drive to commute to spend $25 to $75 a week to traverse the city (I wonder if this will include the private garbage collecting industry).
This jackass really thinks he's president.
And again, cool Rush reference by anon above.
These days are numbered, you wastrel political scion!
This man sounds so condescending and arrogant. Cannot stand even to hear his voice.
Cuomo the HUD chief.
President Cuomo to the rescue, NOT !!!!
He's going to fight the IRS? HA HA HA HA HA
Please please run for president. Please hire a couple of people and throw all your money away on tv ads and print ads no one will see or read.
Don't count on this wasteful fascist, mega-manipulative, sociopath, pig criminal days being numbered.
Voters wanting free stuff and socialism will outnumber the middle class 3:1 in 7 years.
You can bet all the bums, immigrants and useless Millennial Generation Y studying liberal arts & sciences in school (future lifetime of welfare) will place Cuomo right in office just like our current stupid voters rewarded deBlasio with re-election.
If you own anything of value its time to do some serious thinking about protecting assets and having any quality of life in this city.
So he wants to protect us from federal taxes by raising our state taxes? Like a little kid complaining "It's mine!"
