New York State Sales Tax Notice

From October 1, 2010, through March 31, 2011, New York State sales tax applies to clothing and footwear that costs under $110. Recent legislation eliminated the exemption. Starting October 1, 2010, clothing and footwear costing less than $110 will be subject to:

  • 4% New York State sales and use tax
  • ⅜% tax in the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District, if applicable

Impact on local taxes

For localities that don't have a local sales tax exemption, all sales of clothing and footwear will be subject to the full state and local sales tax.

For localities that have a local sales tax exemption, sales of eligible clothing and footwear costing less than $110 will remain exempt from local sales tax, but will be subject to the 4% state sales tax (and ⅜% MCTD sales tax, if applicable).

More information

  • Pub 718-C, Sales and Use Tax Rates on Clothing and Footwear 
  • TSB-M-06(6)S, Year-Round Sales and Use Tax Exemptions of Clothing, Footwear, and Items Used to Make or Repair Exempt Clothing (for a complete description of the clothing and footwear exemption and a listing of exempt and taxable items)

The above information is posted on the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance website, click HERE to go to that page.

* Because Tax Table 1 is typically set to the location's normal tax rate (State + Local) and Tax Table 2 is typically set for the reduced tax rate (Local); in most cases, by reassigning any departments that were previously set to Tax Table 2 over to Tax Table 1, your register should now calculate the clothing tax properly.  Click on Assigning Tax Table 1 to a Department for instructions on making this change.
