Memo

BILL NUMBER:S1433A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to providing a tax exemption for commercial horse boarding services

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 adds a new Subdivision (jj) of Section 1115 of the Tax Law to exempt all receipts from the sale of horse boarding services provided by a commercial horse boarding operation for the care, control and custody of horses.

PURPOSE & JUSTIFICATION: To clarify the Sales Tax Law to specify that all services provided by commercial horse boarding operations are exempt from sales tax. In 2000, sales tax relief was provided to farm-related purchases including commercial horse boarding operations. Instruction, training and showing of horses is nontaxable, but according to tax regulations, care, custody and control services are taxable. Taxable services currently include feeding, watering, mucking, grooming, exercising, blanketing, spraying, worming, holding for farrier or Vet, administering shots, nursing care, maintenance of tack and burial of dead animals. The existing Tax Law is confusing and open to interpretation as to what services are or are not taxable for horse boarding. Raising of horses is a growing and vital part of agriculture in New York State and removing the sales tax from all aspects of horse boarding will remove any confusion from the law and make New York a more friendly state for the horse business.

EXISTING LAW: A sales tax exemption is granted for horse instruction, training and showing, but care, custody and control of horses is taxable. Services provided for horses used for pleasure, racing or show are taxable.
