Yeshiva Tuition Break - ACT NOW!

With just two weeks left in the Legislative session in Albany, now is the time to act to help families who are struggling to pay yeshiva tuition. Assemblyman Vito Lopez & Senator Marty Golden have introduced legislation that would allow middle-class parents to deduct the cost of private school tuition from their state taxes and poor families would receive an actual tax credit. This could save average families in our community thousands of dollars each year. But we must ACT NOW. The legislative session in Albany ends June 21.

Governor Spitzer has the ability to get this done so please call Governor Spitzer's office today at 800-513-1556. It takes less than sixty seconds phone call to this toll-free number could save our community millions of dollars!

If you speak with a live operator, please say: "I am calling to ask the Governor to support the Lopez-Golden Tuition Tax Deduction Bill." If you reach a voice mailbox, DO NOT HANG UP! Each message is logged and counts! After the tone, leave the same message along with your zip code.
