Annamarie G. Gentile Joins Staten Islanders In Testifying At MTA Payroll Tax Hearing

Annamarie Gentile, Esq., supervising partner of the Elder Law and Estate Planning Group at Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, joined dozens of Staten Islanders at the MTA Payroll Tax Hearing held on October 25, 2011. Those in attendance ranged from small business owners, teachers association representatives and religious organization presidents. The metropolitan commuter transportation mobility tax, which was passed in 2009, imposes a tax on certain employers and self-employed individuals engaging in business within the metropolitan commuter transportation district. Attendees testified as to the effects the tax has had since its initiation in the hopes of having the tax repealed.
