"The federal government passed a disastrous tax bill that put corporations over people and specifically targeted New York and other Democratic states with the elimination of full state and local tax deductibility. New York was the first to take action to protect our residents from this hostile assault and ensure New York families weren't being used as a piggy bank to pay for tax cuts for big corporations.

 

"Now, the administration appears poised to attack again through new tax regulations, showing its true hostility to New Yorkers and middle-class taxpayers. It is particularly ironic that Donald Trump is in Long Island today while the IRS aims its sights on Long Island homeowners.

"Make no mistake: We have been and will continue to fight against this economic missile with every fiber of our being. The IRS should not be used as a political weapon, and I urge this administration to stop its partisan assault on New Yorkers and instead work with us to deliver real, lasting relief for hardworking families."
