Tax returns show Cynthia Nixon, wife made $1.9 million dollars past year

NY Gov. Cuomo Remains Ahead of Actress Cynthia Nixon in Poll

NY Gov. Cuomo Remains Ahead of Actress Cynthia Nixon in Poll

A study by the National Center for Charitable Statistics based on 2011 federal tax returns found the average NY taxpayer with a gross adjusted income of averaging $68,841 who itemized his or her deductions contributed $4,305 to charity.

Nixon's federal adjusted gross income was $619,799, and the couple's state and city taxes came out to $62,866, Democrat and Chronicle reported.

The actress's Fickle Mermaid firm listed gross receipts of $1 million previous year.

Nixon's Democratic primary opponent, two-term incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo, released his tax returns last month.

The income by the activist, theater actor and co-star of the "Sex and the City" TV series and movies is tops among announced candidates for governor. They also donated to homeless shelters and a public library. She hopes to expand rent-stabilization laws as well, which now only apply to buildings built before 1974 with at least six units in New York City, Westchester County, Rockland County and Nassau County.

Nixon paid $28,000 in real estate taxes, the most of the candidates.

Cuomo said her failure to disclose more showed a lack of transparency and a disregard for gubernatorial tradition.

Nixon and Marinoni reported that they made $183,344 on the sale of a home in Montauk that they bought February 2, 2012, and sold March 28, 2017. Cynthia Nixon has pledged not to take any corporate campaign contributions, including from fossil fuel companies.

"Cynthia readily admits that she has been very fortunate, and is now among the higher earners in the state", said Rebecca Katz, a senior strategist to Ms. Nixon's campaign.

She draws a $400,000 salary and said she works 100 percent for the company, the returns showed. Mr. Cuomo gave $11,000, all to a homelessness group, HELP USA, that he founded.

Molinaro has tried to position himself as the only candidate who knows what it's like to struggle in NY, a high-cost, high-tax state.

Cuomo has released tax returns every year he has been governor, though in 2010, as a candidate, did not release his tax returns until December, after Election Day.

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