BILL NUMBER:S4332

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the tax law, in relation to creating a local food and products
sourcing tax credit

PURPOSE:
This bill will provide a tax credit to those businesses in
New York state which sell New York state products

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 Section 210 of the tax law
is amended by adding a new subdivision 43 to read as follows: 41.
Local food and products sourcing tax credit. 1. Businesses subject to
tax liability under article nine or nine-A of this chapter may claim
the local foods and products sourcing tax credit against any such
liability at the close of the tax year provided, however, that the
unused portion of any tax credit claimed shall not be carried forward
and applied in another tax year.

JUSTIFICATION:
New York state has a plethora of products grown, raised
and produced within the state of New York, from seed or conception
through final product. Businesses in New York which sell these
products make our state stronger by supporting other local businesses
which produce these products. This tax credit would encourage more
local businesses to buy and sell local goods. Based on the percentage
of net sales, the business would receive a percentage of their sales
in the form of a tax credit.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
07/01/10 A.11270 - Held for consideration in Ways and Means

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Unknown.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
