I just did my state income tax. NY wants people to pay any sales tax on items that they bought on E Bay or had shipped to them from out of state and didn't pay any sales tax when purchased. You are supposed to add it on to your income tax return. Here are the examples they give on items they want the sales tax paid on. Number 2 cracks me up.


Example 1:
You purchased a computer over the Internet

that was delivered to your house in Monroe County,
New York, from an out-of-state company and did not
pay sales tax to that company.
Example 2:


You purchased a book on a trip to

New Hampshire that you brought back to your residence

in Nassau County, New York, for use there.

yeah, NYS income tax is messed up like that. Even if you bought a book in another state where you paid sales tax- if you brought it back to NY then they feel you should pay sales tax here too, just in case you decide you want to read the book here.

just because it isn't new doesn't make it any less retarded.

No, but it does make the title "Only in NY" a bit incorrect. NY, however, is the only state to start requiring (or at least trying to require) out of state merchants to collect sales tax on internet purchases at the time of purchase. That raises the bar of stupidity and arrogance a few notches. click me

That isn't new either. Admittedly I didn't click the link - however, large online retailers refused when the concept was originally instated. Amazon and several other online only chain retailers simply said they would refuse to sell to NY residents.

EDIT: Yeah, that's the policy I was referring to. Last spring/summer when NY thought they would make a killing on collecting tax revenue they were "due". lol. how about no.

I never said it was new, I just said that it was applicable to the "Only in NY" title of the article.

The reason I posted this was to point out the example of the book purchase, which is listed right in the income tax forms. They want everyone to add it on their income tax. I knew they have been doing this for a while and other states do also. BTW they let a typical family just pay $29 flat tax.

I guess this means that when I travel to New York for a day picnic with beer & grub I hauled in from NH, then I owe somebody a sales tax for use in NewYork

you never know how much the tax is going to be, seems like every county and half the cities tack on theirs too, I almost died once when buying a pack of AA batteries

Commifornia has the same box for collecting what they think is due to them on the tax form.

The turd politicians are especially adept at creating new taxes so that we can all collectively pay for those more deserving: state union workerers and others.

There's now a tax on our tax, but it's legal because it is officially called a "surcharge".

I'm glad to pay my fair share and delay my once-projected early retirement (ironically, so that I can go teach) so that the state workers don't have to ever worry about theirs.

FAIR is the only four letter "F" word I know.

Give them another couple of years. If the merchants don't start supplying the info by then the states will start going directly to the credit card processors and get the data, there has already been talk in the NY Legislature about it.

I read that the Governator wants to lay off 10,000 state workers in CA. Times are tough all over, and I see no reason why state workers shouldnt face similar streamlining steps as all businesses.
