Joseph Spector in Politics on the Hudson reports that New York was again ranked 49th by the the Washington D.C.-based conservative group Tax Foundation, though the group earlier this month hosted an event awarding Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his tax policies. The group recently praised New York and Cuomo for its corporate tax policies, including reductions in corporate-tax rates and an end to a manufacturing tax. Now the Tax Foundation says if Cuomoa's policies are enacted, New York would move to 4th place in that category. “New York’s corporate tax reforms are certainly a major improvement –- we gave Governor Cuomo an award earlier this month for championing the changes. While New York still has a long way to go, the recent reforms represent a concerted effort towards a simpler and smarter tax code.” Only New Jersey ranked lower in the group's overall rankings.
