Governor Calls for State-Run Retirement Plan for Private Sector    

In his Fiscal Year 2019 budget, Governor Cuomo called for a state-sponsored and run retirement program for private-sector workers whose employers do not offer a qualified plan.  The plan is the wrong approach to encouraging retirement savings and unnecessarily would displace the private market.

Federal Tax Reform    

On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed into law the largest overhaul of the U.S. tax code since the Reagan Administration.  The new law makes numerous changes – including permanently dropping the corporate tax rate to 21%, temporarily lowering personal tax rates, and nearly eliminating the state and local tax (SALT) deduction critical to so many New Yorkers.  The full text is available HERE.  Other details can be found HERE.
