NY Senate Democrats Say Taxpayers Will Save on Taxes This Year


The New York State Senator Lea Webb and the State Senate Democrats say residents in the 52nd Senate District can expect to see savings when they file their taxes this year. A release by Senator Webb’s Office says the savings is part of the 2018 middle class tax cuts.

Residents in the state could see a savings between .40% and .83% on their taxes this year when compared to 2018 tax rates. The tax cuts were originally to take effect next year (2025). Webb says households will now pay the lowest personal income tax rate in over 70 years.

“I am proud to announce that this year when filing for their 2023 taxes, my constituents will see significant savings thanks to our fully phased in Middle Class Tax Cut (MCTC) on Personal Income Tax. By accelerating this timeline by two years, Senate Democrats will ensure that workers keep more money directly in their pockets and are better supporting our crucial middle class families. For the hardworking families in my district, this will help ease the financial burden that many face, and help boost their economic situation. This is one of many steps I am taking to protect my community’s paychecks.”

Lea Webb said in a release.

A breakdown of the savings within the 52nd Senate District can be seen below:

  • 50,136 individuals will save an average of $289
  • 15,115 heads of households will save an average of $304
  • 42,240 married couples will save an average of $536
