HANNON ENCOURAGES LONG ISLANDERS
TO DEMAND THEIR TAX REFUND
Upon Governor Patersonís announcement that some state income tax refunds will likely be delayed. Senator Kemp Hannon started an online petition on his website www.kemphannon.com and his Facebook, encouraging Long Islanders to demand their tax refunds.
Senator Hannon said, ďThe Governor is not listening to the people. Long Islanders are counting on those tax refund checks. In this economy, every cent counts. Thatís why I am encouraging Long Islanderís to express their opinion and call upon Governor Paterson to reconsider his decision.Ē
The governor vowed to withhold $500 million in refunds until early April as part of a larger plan to forestall New York from running out of money on March 31, the end of the current fiscal year.
