ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York's comptroller says the state once again is paying much more in federal taxes than it receives in federal spending.
A report set to be released Tuesday says New York paid $26.6 billion more in federal taxes in the fiscal year ending in 2018 than in got back in federal funds. New York has seen a gap dating back to 2013, when it totaled $19.9 billion.
Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says the ongoing trend makes it critical that the upcoming 2020 Census is accurate and maximizes the state's population count.
