Change in NYS Sales Tax Exemption on Clothing and Footwear
By: Grossman St. Amour CPAs
Date: March 2012

Beginning April 1, 2012, the New York State sales tax clothing exemption is restored to the less-than-$110 threshold. Sales of eligible clothing and footwear costing less than $110 are exempt from the 4% New York State sales tax, the local tax in those localities that provide the exemption, and the 3/8% Metropolitan Commuter Transportation Districe (MCTD) tax within the exempt localities in the MCTD. 

For the period April 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012, clothing and footwear sold for less than $55 per item of clothing or per pair of footwear were exempt from the state’s 4% sales tax and the 3/8% state sales tax in the MCTD.

For more information please contact one of our tax professionals.
