ALBANY, NY -- The New York State Automatic Vending Association is calling on industry members in the state to contact their representatives in the Assembly to explain the importance of a bill providing sales tax relief to New York operators.

The bill, S.3445, would increase the sales and use tax exemption on vended sales of food and beverages from its present ceiling of 75¢ to $1.50. It did not go to a vote in the Assembly, although it was passed by the Senate, supported by the governor and endorsed by many Assembly members.

The measure now has been reintroduced as an amendment by Sen. Thomas W. Libous (R-52nd District).

NYSAVA's Brian W. Gill, Next Generation Vending LLC (Canastota), urges everyone to get involved in explaining its importance to their Assembly members.

 "We must show the Assembly that by not passing this amendment, many jobs will be lost in New York -- and with them, payroll tax revenue -- with a significant effect on our industry and New York's unemployment," Gill emphasized.

NYSAVA is a state council of the National Automatic Merchandising Association.
