    The state of New York ony has a 4 percent sales tax.  But nearly every every locality adds 4 percent or more to that, so it is difficult to buy anything in the land of taxation without paying 8.25 percent or more.  That money is in addition of dozens of fees and  surcharges that are added as well in the second worst taxed state in the union.  If you pay a phone bill in parts of the state, you pay a surcharge (dare not call it a tax) to finance commuter trains.  Business and individuals are leaving New York State in number never seen before, and Mario Cuomo's dumber son can't seem to put two and two together to finger out why.   Of course if dumb Andy could add and subtract, he would probably lower taxes to save the state.
