New York ranks dead last in its state business tax ranking, according to a report.
It had ranked 49th in 2012, but the continuation of a tax hike on the wealthy bumped it to 50th, just ahead of New Jersey.
The National Federation for Independent Business, naturally, was not pleased.
“If we’re serious about changing New York’s reputation as a place to do business, then we need more than a slick advertising campaign,” New York state NFIB director Mike Durant said in a news release Tuesday. “We need real reform that starts with fewer mandates on local governments which drive up property taxes and we need lower, flatter income taxes that reward people for working and investing here.”
Helps put in perspective all those election-year fliers touting the new New York.
