Cuomo to meet with Trump about impact of tax changes in NY

Andrew Cuomo

Andrew Cuomo sat down with President Trump on Tuesday to discuss revising a portion of Trump's 2017 tax overhaul, a measure Cuomo contends is driving the wealthy out of the state.

Cuomo was visiting the White House to discuss the $10,000 cap on federal deduction for state and local taxes (SALT), a provision he says is contributing to a dip of more than $2 billion in tax receipts.

Cuomo says that change is prompting some wealthy residents to leave NY and leading to a worrisome drop in state revenue.

According to The New York Times, that constitutes an eight-year low for the governor, who was inaugurated to his first term in 2011.

Cuomo plans to travel to Washington on Tuesday and return to NY later in the day. "I want to make the president aware of it", Cuomo said. "The President reiterated the negative impact that high taxes in states like NY have on hardworking families and job creators".

The attorney maintained the government knew about his immigration status as he had a 2017 U-visa application pending approval. Abraham-Joseph was nominated for two awards at the Grammys, including record of the year for "Rockstar" alongside Post Malone.

Speaking on public radio before his one-day trip, Cuomo says he's more hopeful the cap could be repealed now that Democrats control the U.S. House.

The White House said the meeting demonstrated Trump's willingness to meet regularly with the nation's governors.

"Just before Schumer became U.S. Senate Minority Leader, he had a 67-23 percent favorability and was far and away the most popular NY pol".

Prospects for new tax legislation that would expand or remove the $10,000 cap are weak, given the Republican majority in the Senate and concern over the potential for increasing the deficit without corresponding new revenue sources.

Only 35 percent of voters said Cuomo was doing an "excellent" or "good" job, with 64 percent rating his performance as "fair" or "poor".
