From CBS 2:
The New York State legislature is considering a host of new tax increases to help deal with its budget crisis.
Now there's talk of restoring a tax break that many New York shoppers probably take for granted.
For the last three years, clothing and shoes costing less than $110 have been exempt from the state's four percent sales tax, costing New York $690 million in tax revenues each year.
With a state budget gap of $9.2 billion dollars and a budget that's three months late, there's talk of bring back the sales tax on clothes under $110.
Governor Paterson confirms that informal tax discussions with Albany lawmakers are underway.
"They have some proposals on the table," said Paterson. "We're reviewing them, and frankly, they don't sound bad."
