NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A2287
 
SPONSOR: Morelle (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to the sales tax exemption for car wash facilities   PURPOSE: To expand the sales tax exemption for coin-operated car wash services to authorize the exemption where payment is made by credit or debit card.   JUSTIFICATION: Under current law, coin-operated car wash services are exempt from sales tax. "Coin-operated" is defined to include coin-operated, currency-oper- ated or token operated, but does not include credit nor debit card machine transactions. If a coin-operated car wash business adds equip- ment to authorize payment by credit or debit card, then the coin oper- ated services are not subject to sales tax under current law, but the services paid for through the credit or debit card machine are subject to sales tax. This requires a separate accounting for the credit or debit card transactions, with the associated additional burdens for the car wash business owner. Car wash businesses install credit or debit card machines as a convenience to consumers and they should not be required to pay sales tax on these services, which would otherwise be exempt from sales taxation, because they are offering a more modern mode of payment as a convenience to the consumer. In addition, when sales tax is required to be paid on car wash services paid for through credit or debit card machines, the car wash business is subject to double taxation because it must also pay sales tax on the products and equipment purchased to provide the car wash. It is inequi- table to tax these small businessmen at two levels in the chain of commerce and this bill would remedy this inequity.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A.7510 of 2013/14: referred to ways and means; A.6185 of 2015/16: referred to ways and means   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first day of a sales tax quarterly period as described in subdivision (b) of section 1136 of the tax law, occurring at least sixty days after this act shall have become a law.
