Immigrant Youth Add $140 Million to NY State Tax Revenues

April 25, 2017. What will happen to immigrant youth who as children were brought to the United States without legal status and were temporarily shielded from deportation by a 2012 executive order known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA? The Trump Administration is projecting very mixed messages about the present and future of these young people.

To help shed some light on how DACA has allowed these young immigrants to contribute to our country and our state, a new report shows the state and local tax contributions of young people eligible for DACA. The 50-state analysis was conducted by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, and it is co-released in New York by the Fiscal Policy Institute.
