The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) payroll tax has become a universally maligned burden on the Hudson Valley’s small business community.
Assemblyman Greg Ball is working to channel that criticism into action with a formalized taxpayer revolt. Ball is asking taxpayers to place their MTA payroll tax checks into an escrow account to protest the unfair taxes. Ball will be joining the Mahopac-Carmel Chamer of Commerce’s small business roundtable to discuss how taxpayers can organize and participate in the tax revolt. Business leaders and taxpayers will have the opportunity to share their own thoughts on ending the MTA tax.
The taxpayer revolt will culminate in the New York Tax Day Tea Party rally planned for April 15th in Carmel.
The details for the TOMORROW’s round table are as follows:
WHO: Assemblyman Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) and local elected officials from Westchester and Putnam Counties; Jennifer Maher, President Mahopac-Carmel Chamber of Commerce; Members of Area Chambers of Commerce; Local business owners and other concerned taxpayers
