BILL NUMBER:S2085 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to exempting domestic and imported game animals harvested at a game hunting preserve from the sales and compensating use tax PURPOSE: This bill exempts domestic and imported animals harvested at a game hunting preserve from the sales and compensating use tax. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1115 of the Tax Law is amended to include domestic and imported animals when harvested at a game hunting preserve as food or food products sold for human consumption. JUSTIFICATION: This legislation exempts deer meat harvested for human consumption on a gaming preserve from state sales and compensating use tax. When a deer is harvested on a hunting preserve in New York State, sales tax is levied on the cost of the animal taken despite the fact that the venison is being processed for human consumption straightaway. This bill corrects the discrepancy in the state tax law between venison and other meats (i.e. beef, etc.) which constitute food for human consumption.
