Malloy’s Tax Rebate Clears Big Hurdle

By Keith M. Phaneuf

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy cleared a big hurdle today in his bid to provide a $55-per-person rebate to taxpayers when the legislature’s tax-writing panel endorsed the plan.

The Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee approved more than $210 million in tax cuts across this fiscal year, endorsing tax relief for retired teachers, municipalities and business investors.

The committee’s recommendations, coupled with the $19 billion spending plan recommended last week by the Appropriations Committee, will form the foundation for negotiations with the Malloy administration as it and the legislature craft a final state budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1. The deal is expected to be completed before the regular 2014 legislative session ends May 7.

“The taxpayers of this state stepped up,” Sen. John Fonfara, D-Hartford, co-chairman of the finance panel, said, referring to more than $1.5 billion in state tax increases levied three years ago in response to a historic budget deficit.
