NEW YORK (AP) - Mayor Bill de Blasio says he wants to streamline and modernize New York City’s tax code to reduce the burden on businesses.

De Blasio said in a budget address Monday that his measures could provide relief to up to 45,000 small businesses and manufacturers.

He says his proposal for fiscal 2016 also includes $4.6 million to improve service at the Department of Buildings, speed up inspections and cut bureaucracy for small businesses.
