New York Lawmaker Says It’s ‘Ironclad’ That State Tax Break Won’t Get Axed

Representative Chris Collins of New York said Wednesday he’s spoken to key Republicans who have signaled to him the state and local tax deduction will be preserved in some form.

“It’s ironclad that you will not see a full repeal, which was initially within the framework. That there will be an accommodation. And it could be any one of six different flavors or combinations of flavors,” Collins said in an interview. “I’ve heard that the $200,000 middle and upper-middle income are the folks we’re trying to protect.”
