New York State Sales Tax Exemption for Clothing and Footwear

Share:

For the second consecutive year, beginning April 1, 2012, clothing, footwear and related items sold for less than $110 each will be exempt from NYS’s 4 percent sales tax.

The exemption applies to all relevant items purchased in person, over the Internet, by phone or by mail. The qualifying amount for the exemption has doubled since last year, when it applied to apparel at or below $55.

State lawmakers believe the exemption will help working families afford necessities, as well as giving consumers more incentive to shop.

Currently, the New York State Sales Tax is 4 percent. In addition, local governments may implement a Sales Tax exemption for their portion of the local sales tax.

For more information, see the Department of Taxation and Finance’s website at www.tax.ny.gov.
