New York – Use Tax Since 1935

SALT Report 3260 – A New York state perspective on Use Tax…what is it…who owes it…how do I pay it?

“When sales tax has not been collected on taxable items or services, tax is required to be paid when the items or services are used in New York. Use tax is a tax imposed on the use of taxable items and services in New York when the sales tax has not been paid. There is a distinction between sales tax that should have been paid and use tax. However, for purposes of simplicity, the tax required to be paid is referred to in this bulletin as use tax.”
