As the holidays approach, the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance wants to remind shoppers and retailers that clothing and footwear items sold for less than $110 are exempt from New York State’s 4 percent sales tax.
Clothing and footwear items sold for under $110 are always exempt from New York State sales tax—during the holiday shopping season and throughout the yearShoppers statewide who make qualifying purchases don’t have to pay the 4 percent state sales tax on those items.
The state exemption alone translates into about $900 million of savings annually. The combined amount from the state and local sales tax exemptions is more than $1 billion annually.
