Lawmakers Approve Sales Tax Exemption
Could spur back-to-school sales
Shoppers purchasing back to school clothing and shoes this summer will get a sales tax break if those purchases are made during the third week of August. By a vote of 7-1, the Putnam Legislature approved the measure at a special meeting last week and forwarded the home rule request to Albany for approval in the State Legislature.
