VIDEO: Seward for family tax relief
State Sen. James Seward, R-Milford, is backing a tax relief package from his party that is aimed to help the middle class.
Below is a video of him talking about the package, which includes a doubling of the Dependent Exemption, an increase of the Child Tax Credit, an additional $500 child tax credit, an increase in the value of the Dependent Care Credit and a restoration of the STAR property tax rebate checks.
“The 'Family Tax Relief Act' will give middle class families some much-needed breathing room by allowing them to keep more of their hard-earned money,” said Seward in a statement. “The plan takes aim at tax credits and exemptions that are long overdue for reform and provides direct tax relief that will put money back in the pockets of New York’s working class.”
