New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo seems to be setting the stage for a tax cut next year.  Recently, he’s appointed a new commission to look at cutting property and other taxes, and has said the state may have a budget surplus to pay for them.
The governor announced a new tax policy commission headed by former New York State Governor George Pataki, a Republican, and former state Comptroller Carl McCall, a Democrat. Both are former political rivals of Cuomo.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is appointing a new tax cutting commission that he’s charged with finding ways of slicing state revenues by $2 to $3 billion dollars next year.

Cuomo turned to the man who beat his father in the 1994 governor’s race, George Pataki, to co chair the commission. Pataki, a Republican, defeated Mario Cuomo  on a platform that included tax cuts.

Pataki, who says the state “spends too much and costs too much,” says he’s happy to serve on the commission, but at first thought a mistake had been made.
