“The largest tax increase felt by Westchester County taxpayers was the – intentionally targeted – capping of the State and Local Tax Deduction at $10K included in the Trump/GOP tax plan passed in 2017. Today, in a move that will lift up Westchester’s hard-working middle class homeowners, the House of Representatives raised this cap as a part of the Build Back Better social infrastructure package.

“Westchester’s middle-class homeowners chose to live here because of the exceptional services provided by local governments, schools and municipal entities. Mass transit, educational opportunities, public safety officers and investments like our award-winning parks system all add to the high quality of life in our region. Thank you to Westchester Representatives Sean Patrick Maloney, Mondaire Jones & Jamaal Bowman for their efforts to keep this provision in the BBB and thanks as well to Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for continuing their fight in the Senate on behalf of our community.”
