One top state pol is claiming the cookie tax credit.
State Controller Thomas DiNapoli, the state's chief fiscal watchdog, claimed a tax deduction on $14 he gave to the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County, according to his 2010 tax return released yesterday.
DiNapoli spokeswoman Emily DeSantis said the contribution was part of a Girl Scouts program to send their famous cookies to U.S. troops overseas.
