“New Yorkers love to believe that we’re number one in everything. We’re certainly number one in something now, and that’s personal income tax rates.”

Ken Pokalsky, Vice President of The Business Council of New York State, and Michael Hilkin, Counsel in the New York office of Eversheds Sutherland, join Partner Nikki Dobay on this episode of the SALT Shaker Podcast policy series. Together, they discuss the newly passed New York State budget, which includes some significant changes for individual and corporate taxpayers, New York’s unemployment trust fund deficit and the prospect of the Department of Finance finalizing regulations that remain in draft form but are related to the 2015 reform of New York’s corporate franchise tax. 

The Eversheds Sutherland State and Local Tax team has been engaged in state tax policy work for years, tracking tax legislation, helping clients gauge the impact of various proposals, drafting talking points and rewriting legislation. This series, which is focused on state and local tax policy issues, is hosted by Partner Nikki Dobay, who has an extensive background in tax policy.
