State Revenues Increase After Higher Incomes Pay More Taxes

How Brazil is reforming a public fund to finance broadband expansion

Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said Monday that strong tax collections are an “encouraging sign of economic recovery.” He is calling for lawmakers to use surplus dollars to boost the rainy day fund and to pay for critical infrastructure projects.

New York ended September with a balance of about $20 billion in the main operating fund, which is where most state revenues go. That’s up from $15 billion in September 2020, $9 billion in September 2019 and $6.4 billion in September 2018. DiNapoli has also said New York could ask Congress to forgive a portion of the $10 billion that the state borrowed for unemployment benefits.

Meanwhile, the Democratic-led Legislature and Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul are facing calls from businesses to reverse tax increases. Left-leaning advocacy groups are urging lawmakers to use surplus funds on COVID-19 relief for vulnerable groups, including undocumented workers and 800,000 New Yorkers who recently lost federal unemployment benefits.

Hochul last month set aside 1.1 billion in additional revenue into reserve funds, including a reserve to fund labor settlements. She also set aside $650 million to reduce borrowing for capital projects.

New York City residents now face the nation’s highest state and local income tax rate: 14.776% for taxpayers with income over $25 million. Previously, New York had a 8.82% top income tax rate. This spring, lawmakers raised that rate to 9.65% for individual filers with income over $1,077,550 and joint filers with income over $2,155,350.
