Patch: Ball Announces Plan to Phase Out MTA Payroll Tax

June 9 - New York State Senators Greg Ball, R, C-Patterson, and Lee M. Zeldin, R-C, I-Shirley, presented the details of a bill that would eliminate the Metropolitan Transit Authority payroll tax for schools and small businesses by January 2012.

They were joined by lawmakers, community members and business owners during a press conference on Wednesday in Yorktown.

“We’re in the midst of one of the worst economies that we’ve had since the Great Depression,” Ball said. “And it is absolutely insane to think that we can dig our way out of this problem and out of this economy by taxing jobs that were already hemorrhaging.”
