@halfpint1 I certainly have never heard of no clothing TAX in NYC - I can tell you the rest of us in NY get taxed.  Some confusion ...........................


I am at the other end of the state from NYC and we most certainly get taxed on clothing. My county also has a high sales taxes.

 

I have seen a few noce pairs of shoes lately but didn’t purchase because the $5.50 shipping for shoes is quite high, especially considering free shipping one shoes is quite common elsewhere but I may give them another look today.

We haven't had a tax on clothing in NYC for years. 

 

I think I read somewhere that there are other counties that have no tax on clothing.

Most counties in NY still charge their sales tax which is usually around 4%. My countie of course still charges the tax. I think only a handful have followed along with the state exemption.

Huh! New York City has no tax on clothing!  Surprises me as here in my Midwest City, no such thing, as far as I know. Heck, I pay City taxes and I don't even live in the City. Worst part, I pay their taxes, but can't vote for anything or anyone City.

 

And here I thought both the farthest East and the farthest West big cities taxed about e everything people buy, and/or use!

I think one of the reasons they eliminated thel clothing tax in NYC is because NJ had no clothing tax and many people went there to shop instead. It was a way of keeping the $'s in NY at NY businesses.
