Cynthia Nixon Releases Tax Returns to Public

Governor Cuomo signs legislation to remove guns from domestic abusers

Governor Cuomo signs legislation to remove guns from domestic abusers

Democratic challenger Cynthia Nixon on Friday made her 2017 tax returns available for public viewing, while Republican Marc Molinaro did so on Thursday.

Cuomo reported paying no property taxes but has said he splits the household costs with his longtime partner, food TV host and author Sandra Lee, in her home in Westchester County.

"Instead of unleashing more desperate, unhinged attacks on charities for low-income New Yorkers, Andrew Cuomo should focus on cleaning up the corrupt cesspool he's presided over in Albany, and return every dollar of the millions in conservative, corporate money he's gobbled up".

The couple netted more than $125,000 in capital gains and were paid almost $33,000 in dividends from investments. Reporters were also prohibited from taking photos.

Shortly after, Ms. Nixon's camp shot back, calling Mr. Cuomo a "corrupt hypocrite" for not disclosing his tax return in 2010, when he made his first successful run for governor.

"The only reason you would bear the criticism is you have something to hide", Cuomo said.

Cuomo, speaking to reporters after an event in Rochester, said past candidates for governor, including himself, have released multiple years of tax statements.

Nixon, who lives in Manhattan with Marinoni and her two sons, reported $196,375 in total federal taxes paid by the two women; they received a $45,775 federal tax refund.

The foundation's 2017 return shows that it gave money to disparate groups - such as those fighting cystic fibrosis, doing nonprofit theater and the Girl Scouts - including $15,000 to the Public Policy and Education Fund, which is an affiliate of Citizen Action of NY. Working Families Party leaders accused Cuomo at the time of threatening labor leaders who sided with Nixon, a charge the governor's campaign has denied. That group has endorsed Ms. Nixon. He also donated $11,000 to HELP USA, a charity he founded years ago to fight homelessness.

"Nixon's deep grasp of the issues and keen political understanding will make her the kind of Democratic governor that this state has sorely missed for the past eight years". Mr. Cuomo's aides have said the governor is referring to his upbringing in Queens before his father, Mario M. Cuomo, became a three-term governor.
