BILL NUMBER: S719

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the tax law, in relation to authorizing the county of
Nassau to elect to be exempt from certain taxes related to motor fuel
and diesel motor fuel


PURPOSE :
To reduce the amount of sales tax individuals pay in Nassau county for
motor fuel.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1 adds section 1115-a of the Tax Law to allow Nassau County to
elect to eliminate its sales and use tax on motor fuel.

Section 2 establishes an effective date.

JUSTIFICATION :
The past year has seen dramatic increases in the price of gasoline
from roughly $2 per gallon to well over $3 per gallon. Because the
price of gasoline is matched by a proportional increase in the sales
tax, it is time to give something back to the consumer who is under
greater stress due to increased prices. This bill would allow Nassau
County, if it chooses, to drop its portion of the sales tax on
gasoline.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2007-08: Referred to Energy and Telecommunications
2005-06: Referred to Energy and Telecommunications

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately.
