New Poll Finds Cuomo's Favorability Rating Dropping, But A Majority Do Not Want Him To Resign

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says middle class New Yorkers will see a lower income tax rate this year.

It's part of the budget that Albany just passed.

"$43,000-$161,000, your tax rate goes down. From $160,000-$323,000, your tax rate goes down. $323,000 per year, middle class, at one point that would've been 'rich' people," Cuomo said.

There's also a middle class property tax credit for people making less than $250,000.

Cuomo says the credit will give more than $380 million in savings to more than 1.1 million homeowners in New York state.
