Rep. Claudia Tenney

Budget Included Provision Supporting an End to the State and Local Tax Deduction

Today, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) released the following statement on the passage of the 2018 Budget, which included a provision supporting the elimination the state and local tax deduction (SALT):

“Eliminating the SALT deduction will unfairly burden over 62,000 people in the 22nd District and strip hardworking families of their only real tax relief. Tax reform is key to unleashing our economy, bringing back jobs and creating growth. However, eliminating the SALT deduction will hurt Upstate families, who are already struggling under Albany’s gross mismanagement and skyrocketing taxes. In Albany, I stood up to both parties to fight for my constituents, and I’ll continue to stand up for them in Washington against the political elite. This is an historic opportunity to pass a comprehensive tax reform plan that truly levels the playing field, and we must get it right. I will continue to fight for a plan that decreases the tax burden for all of the hardworking New York families and small business owners I represent.”
