WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representatives Carolyn B. Maloney (D-Manhattan, Queens-NY) and Thomas Reynolds (R-Clarence-NY) have introduced the I Love NY Tax Deduction Act, legislation that will allow individuals to deduct $500, and joint filers $1000, from their federal income taxes for the cost of meals, lodging or entertainment in New York City in 2002.
