NEW YORK STATE -- If you're planning on going shopping this weekend, you may want to know about a sales tax break coming our way.
The state tax department says starting April 1, the four percent state sales tax on clothing and footwear costing less than $110 will be dropped.
Last year, the threshold was $55.
Most local governments in our area, however, will still collect local sales tax.
Shoppers can enjoy the tax break for a year.
