If your families adjusted gross income was between $40,000 and $300,000 on your 2012 tax New York State tax return and you claimed at least one dependent under 17, you're getting a rebate from New York State!

Over the next month, cities in New York State, like Utica, will be receiving rebate checks, IF your school district stayed below the state's new tax cap. Many cities in the Utica school district qualify.

The Associated Press in Albany says:

The two rebate programs were approved by lawmakers and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the past two years.
A spokesman for Cuomo says Friday the rebates represent much-needed tax relief.

We've just received ours and it is much needed relief to help support our child attending our fine Utica schools.
