Working together with Governor Andrew Cuomo, I recently voted to approve a personal income tax cut for hardworking, middle income New Yorkers — bringing the tax rate to the lowest level in 58 years.
This tax cut will help make New York’s economy more competitive, while also saving you money.
Another good way to save money is to make sure that you take advantage of any deductions and tax credits that may be available.
With tax preparation season now underway, it’s a good time to make sure you get the facts you need to save money for you and your family. A great resource is the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance website, which is loaded with information to help you file your taxes accurately, on-time, and in the most cost-effective way possible. Simply click on the link below to visit their website, which includes information on:
- The new personal income tax rates;

- How to request an extension; and
- How to get your refund safely and quickly through use of a debit card or direct deposit.
