LIASB challenges MTA Tax

One of LIASB’s goals is to make sure that our elected representatives hear the voices of Long Island’s small businesses. Our first challenge came in 2010 when, with Ron Gold and Teresa Ward in the forefront, we took on the unfair MTA Tax. They started a petition and collected over 15,000 signatures. They went as far as visiting a local pro-MTA Tax politician, who was the deciding vote for this bill, and asked him to reconsider. He was not in the least bit interested in what these members of LIASB had to say. As a point of information, this politician is no longer in office
