Rather then building all of these casinos in New York, wouldn’t it be a better policy to eliminate the long-term capital gains tax on middle class families? This way, if people had the urge to gamble, they could strategically invest in our economy, and if they invested in the right way, rather then gambling, could improve their economic situation.

How I knew I messed up my tax return: NY State said they owed me a refund. Yes, I made a mistake. And when I fixed that information, NY State said I owed them $76. Typical.
