Sales tax exemption on clothing to be reinstated

Chautauqua County Executive Gregory Edwards would like to remind businesses and residents that on Sunday, April 1, 2012 clothing under $110 will once again be tax exempt.

In an effort to increase the state's revenue for two years, the New York State Legislature enacted a 2010-11 State Budget in August of 2010 that repealed the sales tax exemption on clothing and footwear under $110. By amending the sales and use tax law, the State Legislature created a three phased change to sales tax exemption that would affect counties across New York State and eventually restore the tax exemption to its previous amount.

"The State has modified its tax policy on numerous occasions as to the sales tax exemption on clothing," said County Executive Greg Edwards. "The County policy has not changed but businesses need to be aware of this upcoming modification so that they may act accordingly."

The first phase, from October 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011, eliminated the sales tax exemption on clothing and footwear. This was projected by the New York State Division of Budget to raise $330 million in revenue for the State's fiscal year 2010-11.

The second phase, from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012, provided an exemption on clothing or footwear that is less than $55 per item or pair. This was projected by the NYS Division of Budget to raise $210 million in revenue for the State's fiscal year 2011-12.

The third and final phase will begin on April 1, 2012 and it will restore the original exemption on clothing and footwear items that are less than $110.

The State currently applies a 4% state sales tax on all clothing and footwear items that exceed the sales tax exemption and Chautauqua County does not charge a county sales tax on any clothing or footwear items.
