A new poll shows that if state taxes must be increased, most New York voters would rather see it happen at the checkout line instead of in their pay stubs.

     A Quinnipiac University poll shows 64 percent would prefer raising the sales tax rather than the income tax, while 28 percent disagreed.
    
The poll also reports 51 percent of those questioned say government services should be cut first, while 34 percent would put higher taxes ahead of service cuts.
    
And 64 percent support raising taxes on alcohol, 73 percent back cigarette tax hikes and 79 percent support boosting taxes on those who earn at least $1 million a year, similar to results in a poll last month.
    
Quinnipiac surveyed 1,065 registered voters Feb. 10-15, claiming a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
