New York - State Raises Dollar Amount On Clothing Tax Reprieve

Labels:

New Yorkers looking to update their wardrobe for spring are in luck.

Starting Sunday, the state is raising its tax exemption for clothing and shoe purchases from $55 to $110.

Any purchase under $110 won't be hit with the state sales tax of four percent or the MTA tax of .375 percent.

Clothing and shoe purchases up to $110 are already exempt from the city's local 4.5 percent sales tax.

That means on a $100 purchase, there would be a savings of $8.88.

The state tax holiday will run for one year.
