New York State Tax Sourcebook: April 2005

The New York State Tax Sourcebook provides a compilation of New York State tax facts and figures. Most of the information is presented in a tabular format for quick and easy reference. The publication is updated and published annually to reflect changes in New York's tax structure as well as changes in other states' tax systems. The report includes a discussion and data showing how New York State taxes compare with those of other states, a description of the current structure and history of major types of New York State taxes: the personal income tax; business taxes; sales and compensating use tax; excise and user taxes and fees; and property transfer taxes.

The Sourcebook also includes New York State tax collections data reported by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, used to compare tax burdens in the 50 states. The April 2005 edition contains state tax collection data for state fiscal year April 1, 2002-March 31, 2003. Local tax collection data are available through fiscal year 2001-2002 only. Since local fiscal years differ greatly in New York State and across the nation, these data are the latest available.
