MCTMT Struck Down by New York Supreme Court Ruling

On August 22, 2012, the New York Supreme Court granted a plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment and held that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“MTA”) payroll tax (also known as the “metropolitan commuter transportation mobility tax”, or “MCTMT”) was passed in violation of the New York State constitution.    The MCTMT is projected to generate about $1.26 billion in revenue this year alone.  Unless the case is reversed on appeal, alternative funding sources and significant service cuts would be required of the MTA.
