NY Assembly Passes Budget Without Vend Sales Tax Exemption Hike

ALBANY, NY -- The New York State Assembly has passed a budget bill that does not include the proposed 75¢ increase in the tax exemption on vended sales advocated by the New York State Automatic Vending Association. The present longstanding exemption excludes vended sales at 75¢ or less from state sales tax; the proposal would recognize current economic realities by upping it to $1.50.

NYSAVA's legislative affairs consultant has spoken with Assemblyman William Magee (D-Oneida), who sponsored the measure and who indicated that he will attempt to introduce the change as a standalone bill when the session resumes on April 17.

The National Automatic Merchandising Association (Chicago) reports that its New York state council hopes to organize a "lobby day" in Albany during which industry members can meet with Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Brooklyn) to support increasing the tax exemption.
