Justin Wagner: No tax cuts for the wealthy


Justin Wagner, a Democrat who wants to unseat state Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, next year will unveil a plan Wednesday that prevent tax cuts for New Yorkers making more than $1 million a year. His policy announcement comes about a month before the state’s millionaires tax — which affects individuals who make more than $200,000 a year — is set to expire. Gov. Cuomo has opposed extending it, even as a poll last month showed most New Yorkers support it.

Wagner says his proposal will divert those tax revenues to education, which, he added, will make the choice one about cutting taxes for millionaires or funding education. He will detail his plan Wednesday at 3 p.m. at the Mount Kisco Library.
