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 campaign allowed reporters to review her tax documents for two hours on Friday.

Fifty percent of registered Democrats said they would back Cuomo for a third term as 28% support Nixon, according to a Quinnipiac University poll out Wednesday. Nixon is a longtime film, TV and theater actress, best known for her role in HBO's "Sex and the City".

Nixon's taxes, filed jointly with her wife Christine Marinoni, are complex and filed in six states.

He gave $11,000 in charitable contributions to HELP USA, a charity he founded years ago to fight homelessness.

Nixon, who lives in Manhattan with Marinoni and her two sons, reported $196,375 in total federal taxes paid by the two women; they received a $45,775 federal tax refund.

While Governor Cuomo touted himself today as a champion of climate and environmental issues, he continues to support projects of fossil fuel corporations around the state, most recently slipping $88 million in public dollars into the New York State budget to build a fossil fuel power plant in the Sheridan Hollow community, a low-income community of color in Albany.

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.

Nixon's acting and performance company, The Fickle Mermaid, is named after a children's tale.

She draws a $400,000 salary and said she works 100 percent for the company, the returns showed.

The couple also contributed $500 to the Friends of Montauk Library.

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. The poll conducts nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Texas as a public service and for research.

Cuomo's campaign criticized Nixon for not releasing more years of tax returns, noting that Cuomo once released several years of his tax returns.
