Unemployed workers who got 2020 benefits won’t get pass on State taxes
State leaders confirmed on Wednesday that New York will not waive taxes on a portion of unemployment benefits.
The federal government has promised to do so for the first $10,200 on unemployment benefits received in 2020.
The state has opted to not extend that benefit on state taxes.
According to state Budget Director Robert Mujica “Those benefits have been subject to state tax for decades, so those have not changed.”
