New York Restores Tax Exemption

Craft brewers in New York state can rejoice, as the tax exemption fight has ceased in New York. 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Legislature not only restored a per-gallon tax exemption eliminated by a lawsuit from a rival Massachusetts brewer, but New York is increasing its bet on an industry that’s flourishing despite a slow overall economic recovery. The package of laws announced Wednesday will even allow farmers to sell craft beer at farmers’ markets.

Fight over.  You may now go about your business.
