Chamber statement on passage of Commercial Rent Tax legislation

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Statement from Jessica Walker, president and CEO of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce:

“Today’s passage of Commercial Rent Tax reform is a major step forward. It is the most important policy change in recent years to give small businesses a fighting chance to survive in New York.”

“The needs continue and the work goes on, but this tax change will help many.”

“On behalf of small business owners throughout Manhattan, I wish to thank Mayor de Blasio, members of the City Council -- particularly lead sponsor Dan Garodnick -- and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer for their leadership on this issue.”
