End Regressive Taxes, Support Mass Transit
To the Editor: I want to commend the Putnam County Legislators for their stand against the MTA tax. Our residents are already suffering under an avalanche of onerous property taxes, sales taxes, and fees. It is time for the state to end its reliance on these regressive taxes that oppressively burden those with the least ability to pay.
