Huntington, NY –As the Senate gains momentum with the tax overhaul plan, localgroups from across Long Island gather in opposition to the projecteddevastating impacts on Long Island residents. With the loss of property taxdeductions, the Work Opportunity Credit that encourages the hiring of veterans,school supply deductions for teachers, student loan tuition deductions, gradstudent tuition waiver deductions, moving expense deductions and an increase inhealth care premiums, removal of ACA mandate making healthcare unaffordable forthose with preexisting conditions, the plan will instantly have negativeconsequences to our local economy, public health and quality of life.

The proposed loss of state and local tax deductions and specificallyreduction of the mortgage tax deduction will place an unfair burden on ourmiddle class families. This is unacceptable.”
