  • About To Leave NY - 4 years ago

    Given the tax load required to feed, house, care for, and incarcerate the underclass to whom the politicians have sold out, there is nothing about NY that would be attractive to business.

    I believe the state should entirely do away with PILOTS (payments in lieu of taxes) and turn
    to tax credits with the ENFORCED requirement that whenever a job is moved or eliminated,
    the business must pay back what was given them. (What fool wouldn't take free money
    (PILOTS) without any conditions or restrictions?) To that, in order not to hold businesses
    "hostage," add reduced utility rates developed and owned by a public-private partnership
    working with existing SUNY engineering and science programs for solar, wind, nuclear,
    and/or geothermal sources. Throwing good money at a situation, without making any
    changes when needed, makes no sense and obviously isn't working.

    NY will go the way of Greece and Puerto Rico eventually.
