TAX SURCHARGE ON NY FIRMS SOUGHT

Gov. Mario Cuomo Tuesday called for a permanent surcharge on New York's corporate taxes to help deal with the state budget woes.

''It's already clear that the corporate entities in this country have done much better as a result of tax reform than anybody anticipated," Gov. Cuomo said during the taping of the "Capitol Connection" show for Albany's WAMC radio."Let's do a corporate surcharge that stays in place," he said.
