BILL NUMBER:S2614

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to providing an
exemption from sales tax for sales made to other states, other political
subdivisions of the United States and their political subdivisions

PURPOSE: To provide an automatic exemption for New York state sales and
use tax to other states and political subdivisions of the United States
for uses which would otherwise be immune from taxation.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Amends paragraph 2 of subdivision(a) of section 1116 of the
tax law to provide that any state, any political subdivision, agency, or
instrumentality which would otherwise be immune from taxation where it
is a purchaser, user or consumer, or where it sells services or property
of a kind not ordinarily sold by private persons.

Section 2. Provides that this act shall take effect July 1, 2013 or on
the first day of a sales tax quarterly period, as described in subdivi-
sion (b) of section 1136 of the tax law, next commencing after signa-
ture.

JUSTIFICATION: New York currently does not provide an automatic
exemption for sales and services performed in New York state for out of
state governmental and other municipal entities. This results in a situ-
ation where other states and their municipal governments are discouraged
from conducting business within New York. The situation is particularly
troublesome for business close to the borders of other states and is
resulting in the loss of such business for in state business concerns.

Many other states currently provide such a blanket sales tax exemption
to other governmental entities, realizing that it is an incentive to
encourage out of state revenue for their employers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: S.6163 Referred to Investigations and
Government Operations

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take affect July 1, 2013 or upon an
immediately preceding sales tax quarter.
