Customer Question
I have a question...

I have a question for NYS Sales Tax with the business in Suffolk County?

Accountant's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

New York State and Suffolk County

Accountant's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I have a business in Suffolk County in NY state which leases heavy duty machinery and equipment for manufacturing to another entity in Suffolk County. I have searched on Pub 750 for the sales tax law for leasing equipment for manufacturing and cannot find anything. I want to know if tmy lease machinery activity is subject to Sales Tax State and Suffolk and if so how much and where i can check the Pub 750 to confirm it?
