Assemblymember Sam Roberts announced repeal of the state sales tax on clothing, footwear under $110

Assemblymember Sam Roberts (D,WF-Syracuse) announced that New York State will repeal the 4 percent state sales tax on clothing, footwear and similar items sold for less than $110 each, the program began April 1.

“By eliminating the 4 percent state sales tax we’re helping families save money and giving a boost to local businesses,” Roberts said. “As the economy begins to move forward again, it’s important that small businesses are given every opportunity to grow, while making sure we relieve tax burdens on our hardworking families.”

The program, which is in its second year, applies to items purchased in person, over the Internet, by phone or by mail, and will save taxpayers an estimated $210 million. This year, the amount for the sales tax exemption has doubled from clothing and footwear sold at $55 or less, to items sold at $110 or less.

“Making sure our middle class thrives is critical, especially for our local economy,” Assemblymember Roberts said. “Providing tax breaks for the middle class and passing the lowest income tax rates in 58 years, along with the recent sales tax repeal, are steps in the right direction.”
