BILL NUMBER:S2927 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to pollution tax credits for the purchase of certain equipment made by dry cleaning businesses PURPOSE: To reduce costs for small dry cleaning businesses faced with disproportionately expensive environmental compliance costs by giving these businesses a sales tax exemption for the purchase of pollution prevention or control equipment. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends various sections of the tax law to provide a sales tax exemption to dry cleaners for the purchase of equipment or machinery certified by the Department of Environmental Conservation that is used primarily to control, prevent or abate pollution or contaminants from their operations. JUSTIFICATION: A State sales tax exemption for the purchase of pollution prevention or control equipment for dry cleaners is appropriate because the public directly benefits for an avoidance of damages to human health by reduced or avoided pollution.
