Governor Cuomo’s recent budget proposal for New York incorporated some tax proposals made by two separate blue-ribbon panel.
A recent post by John D. Dadakis (a Partner at Holland & Knight in New York), explores the Governor’s proposal.
It seems reasonable to think that Governor Cuomo would not have made any proposals in his budget which he didn’t think that a reasonable chance of becoming legislation. Time will tell, but not too much time since New York’s budget is due April 1, 2014. New York has had 3 years running of on-time budgets; expect the trend to continue.
