New York, NY- Today, in response to an IRS decision to tax 9/11 recovery grants, lower-Manhattan business leaders and residents detailed how the tax will stifle growth and threaten New York's recovery. Together with Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY) and Congressman Jerrold Nadler (NY), the group expressed outrage that the aid grants - provided as incentives to businesses and residents to stay in lower Manhattan - would be taxed. The group noted that the IRS waited until just weeks before the fiscal year ended to determine that the grants would be taxable and that taxation of the grants was not the intent of Congress when the grants were authorized. Maloney and Nadler also released a letter to the Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, urging their intervention.
