Proposed Rules Regarding Unlawful Sales Tax
DCA is proposing an amendment to the Consumer Protection Law rules regarding the collection of unlawful sales tax. Currently, Section 5-41 of Chapter 5 of Title 6 of the Rules of the City of New York makes it a deceptive trade practice for any seller to collect sales tax on the sale of any good or service that is not subject to such tax under New York State Tax Law. This amendment would add that it is also a deceptive trade practice for a seller to represent that sales tax may be collected for any good or service that is not subject to such tax.
