Sales Tax Holiday
Aug. 5-7, 2016

This year’s Sales Tax Holiday is Aug. 5-7th. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.

Subject to the criteria explained below, all sales of qualifying items made during the holiday period qualify for the exemption, including items sold online, or by telephone or mail. Lay-away plans can be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.

 

The dates for the sales tax holiday are set by the Legislature.

Good Morning Lisa - these are great.  We have not had one in New York for a few years

This would excite me greatly, if I were a shopper, haha.  I don't like to shop, but when I need something, I look for the best deal.  The sales are never going on when I need something, haha.

Hi Lisa Von Domek Too bad you cannot extend this to 365 days a year.

This is such a great gift that the state legislature can give the taxpayers. Ours was last weekend and sotres were packed.
