Governor Paterson Wants To Withhold State Tax Returnshttp://www.wkbw.com/news/local/84640777.html It is a controversial plan to help New York State pay off debt. Governor Paterson wants to withhold some state tax refunds, in order to help close the budget deficit. Paterson says taxpayers would get their money...eventually...but only after the State got some of their financial issues in order. It is a move that is causing an uproar from Lake Erie to Long Island among residents and lawmakers alike.

Rick Pearl from the Buffalo office of the IRS told Eyewitness News, "...the majority of people coming in today...that's one of their first questions, how long are you going to be holding my money?"

When it domes to your New York State tax return, you could be waiting for quite awhile. Governor Paterson may move forward with a controversial plan to delay State tax refunds. The Paterson administration is considering a plan to withhold $500 million dollars in refunds, in order to help close a $1.4 billion dollar budget gap...

...The State does not have to pay interest on your tax dollars until 45 days after April 15th. In essence, an interest free loan to the State from taxpayers.
I say if they want to raise money, they should sell raffle tickets for a chance to flog state gov't officials with a Roman flagellum. The friggin' budget deficit would be covered in about 5 minutes !

The ability to with hold owed funds until you have them isn't a two way street! A truly shitty move!

Buying stuff on line that is sold outside the borders or SSRNY in order to avoid paying the sales tax.

Not that an upright and proper citizen of the GULAG state such as your humble narrator would ever contrive to deny the almighty apparatchiks what they have decreed is the fair share of one's contributions to the coffers of our glorious people's government !

We do the same as some commodities, especially gasoline, run substantially more here. That sharp increase, about 20 cents per gallon, is only due in part to taxes. The gas companies say it is increased transport costs.

This is of course bullshit in the eyes of the consumers. Major shopping excursions are out of state too, primarily to a collection of outlets and other shopping in Maryland.

Those who can here in SSRNY buy on local indian reservations that don't have to charge the tax on it. I don't happen to live in convenient proximity to one to make such regular runs worth my while - though as SSRNY continues to vie for the highest fuel tax in the land (we're 2nd only to California last time I checked) I consider more and more seriously obtaining a 55 gallon drum to stock up on for personal use.
