Consumers are often confused about the taxes levied on many of the everyday goods they purchase. These taxes vary from good to good, and these variations are often not understood by the shopping public. Sales tax is determined by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, and complaints should be directed to this department.
For more information, please visit the Department's Sales Tax Index.
