New York’s City Income Tax a Rarity

January 30, 2009

In a piece on New York City’s income tax revenues, CNN notes:

While city incomes taxes are common in Iowa, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania, they are an anomaly in most parts of the country, according to a 2008 report by Tax Foundation, a Washington-based think tank. New York City and Yonkers are the only cities levying income taxes in New York state, the foundation said.
