Last week, our friends at the Washington D.C.-based Tax Foundation released their annual list of combined state and federal tax burdens.  Once again, New York ranks number-one, as of 2011.

As we’ve said before, the tax relief in the new state budget – for manufacturers, corporations and small estates – are steps in the right direction.  But we still have much, much more work to do in Albany to make New York a good place to start or grow a business.

We need your help to make sure that our lawmakers in Albany have the will to do it.
