Join unions, social justice advocates, good government groups and elected officials who will rally to push the state legislature to reconvene and take up revenue raising proposals, primarily the Stock Transfer Tax, to address the economic crisis facing New York.

New York’s Stock Transfer Tax has been levied on stock trades since 1905

Since 1981, the tax has been rebated back to Wall Street

If fully collected, the Stock Transfer Tax is estimated to raise between $14 billion and $19 billion annually

NYS Assemblymember Phil Steck and Senator James Sanders have introduced legislation to require the state to keep the proceeds from this tax (see: A.7791-B/S.6203-A)

We need the Senate and Assembly to return to Albany to protect essential services across our state by passing revenue raisers that will have a real and substantial impact on the crisis we face. We cannot tinker around the edges. We need proposals such as the Stock Transfer Tax that will generate significant funds that will support health care, higher education and other public services
