More than one million middle class families across state will benefit from a child tax credit that will be enacted as part of the 2013-14 Budget, the state Division of Budget announced.
As part of the agreement reached by the governor, the senate and the assembly, families with incomes between $40,000 and $300,000 will be eligible to receive a new child tax credit of $350 per-year for three years.
The credit, which will be delivered as a check, will begin in 2014.
In Nassau County, 104,086 families will receive a total of $36.4 million.
Haber Responds to Mangano's "State of the County" Address
The following is from Democratic Nassau County Executive candidate Adam Haber:
"Mangano’s 'State of the County' address is more of the same, speaking out both sides of his mouth. Mangano says that taxes have not gone up but Nassau's middle class families know they are being squeezed by paying more fees, while government services are getting cut. We need a change from the status quo of the past two administrations that lurch from crisis to crisis, burden families with fees and taxes and fail to create a way forward. We need long term strategic planning and an efficient government that puts Nassau back on track."
