Joe Robach and his office have a “Back-to-School Reminder: No State Sales Tax on Clothing Purchases Up to $110”‏

Believe it or not, it’s back-to-school time again!  Joe Robach’s office wants to dive you an important reminder about sales tax.

Preparing our kids for a new school year can be a fun and exciting time, but with so many families feeling an economic crunch these days, it can be a stressful time as well.

That’s why Joe Robach’s office wanted to remind you of some good news that is sure to help your back-to-school budget. Shoppers will not pay state sales tax on clothing purchases up to $110.

Clothing purchases can be a big part of a family budget, and I was pleased to support this tax cut to help hardworking New Yorkers keep more money in their pockets. Repealing the sales tax on clothing is projected to save a typical family of four nearly $200 a year.

For more information about the repeal of the clothing sales tax, visit the Tax Department’s website or contact the office of Joe Robach.  Best wishes to all of our students for a successful 2012-2013 school year!
