3 Long Island GOP congressmen call to make changes to cap on SALT deductions
Three Long Island Republicans put pressure on House leadership to change a cap on State and Local Tax (SALT) deductions.
Reps. Anthony D'Esposito, Andrew Garbarino and Nick LaLota voted briefly with Democrats to hold up House proceedings Tuesday as they push for that change. It currently limits state and local tax deductions to $10,000.
Democratic congressional candidate Tom Suozzi warned that some members of Congress are looking to extend the cap past 2025. He says, if elected, he will oppose that extension.
Mazi Pilip, who is running against Suozzi in a special election for the 3rd Congressional District also released a statement today. Pilip says she "will work with the Long Island delegation to eliminate the cap on the SALT deduction, and return this important tax break for homeowners.”
