CANTON, N.Y. — State Sen. Patricia A. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, has introduced a bill that aims to give a state income tax credit of up to $1,200 to volunteer firefighters and first responders who are in good standing with their departments.
Volunteers now are eligible for a $200 state income tax credit and can claim a credit on property tax.
