Sales tax changes are scheduled to take effect in Monroe and Westchester Counties beginning March 1.
Monroe County has chosen to implement the exemption for clothing sold for under $110. This aligns the county with the state level exemption, meaning that such clothes will be fully exempt from sales tax in Monroe County. For a full list of counties and cities which allow for the exemption see Publication 718-C.
Westchester County temporarily exempted sales of residential energy from county sales tax beginning December 1. This exemption is set to expire at the end of February, meaning that the 4% county sales tax will once again apply to sales of residential energy. During the period between December 1 and February 28 certain city and school district in Westchester County continued to apply their own sales taxes. The combined county/city or county/school district rates in these locations will also increase to account for the imposition of the county tax. For more information on tax rates in these locations see Publication 718-R.
