New Bill Passed Could Include Diapers To Be Exempt From Sales Tax

June 10, 2022

Seems like the price of everything continues to rise by the minute. However, the New York State Senate and Assembly have passed a bill to make diapers exempt from all sales tax in New York. In addition to cutting some sales tax on some essentials, New York is looking to apply this to diapers as well.

Assemblyman Al Stirpe stated: “For many families struggling to make ends meet, sales taxes add an extra expense to an already pricy essential item like diapers. Additionally, elderly adults with limited income can also struggle to purchase these items that they need to live with dignity. It was only right we passed this commonsense measure and it’s essential that this bill is signed into law.”
