Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday indicated he was cool to the proposal to increase taxes on the wealthy in New York this year, saying he doesn’t think there is “any reason or appetite” to do so.

Cuomo was reacting to a proposal backed by the Democratic-led Assembly that would re-approve tax rates due to expire in 2017 that would increase taxes on those earning more than $1 million a year.

The Assembly Democratic conference also backs the creation of an earned income tax credit that would benefit lower-income earners.

But Cuomo was skeptical the measure should be taken up this year.

“I don’t believe there is any reason or appetite to take up taxes this year,” he said.

It’s a similar answer Cuomo gave last year, when his office was skeptical of a paid-family leave program advancing in the Legislature. Cuomo this year backs a 12-week paid leave program.

At the same time, Cuomo is fending off calls to alter the state’s cap on property tax increases. Local government officials as well as school district leaders are concerned the state’s cap — due to be less than 1 percent this year because of the low rate of inflation — will dry up revenue for cash-strapped municipalities and schools.

But Cuomo indicated he is not open to unlinking the cap to the rate of inflation, rather than having a straight 2 percent cap on tax levy increases.

“Politically they don’t want to override the 2 percent,” Cuomo said of local leaders. “It’s become a good housekeeping seal for budgetary diligence. If a locality wants to go beyond the cap, they can go beyond the cap.”

As for raising taxes?

“You have to think before raising taxes,” Cuomo said. “This state has been automatic pilot and these local governments have been on automatic pilot raising taxes year after year.”
