ALBANY, N.Y. — Called a “major victory” for all New York City residents, legislation to exempt sales tax on apparel and footwear in New York City has been signed into law by Governor Eliot Spitzer.
“Eliminating the sales tax on clothing and footwear in New York City has far reaching benefits,” said Senate Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno (R/Rensselaer). “As a result, small businesses will see an increase in business and revenue, and consumer spending will increase, leading to a more vibrant economy. [This bill is] a major victory for the pocket books of all New Yorkers.”
