NYACS POSITIONS ON 2013 BEVERAGE RETAILING ISSUES
That’s it. No more tax or fee hikes impacting C-stores and their customers.
Our members are still reeling from billions of dollars in tax and fee hikes inflicted by the last two state budgets that drained our resources and cost our customers more money in the midst of the worst economic downturn in decades. Enough.
• New York taxes on core convenience-store products (motor fuel, tobacco, beer) are already among the highest in the nation.
• These exorbitant taxes make New York retailers uncompetitive with those in neighboring states and on Indian reservations, driving away customers, jobs and tax revenue.
• License fees should reflect the state’s administrative costs, not prop up the General Fund.
Quit nagging our customers about what they should or shouldn’t eat or drink.
• Government should give consumers the nutritional information they need, and then trust them to wisely exercise their freedom to choose food and beverages.
• With regard to products containing sugar, salt, and/or other targeted ingredients, our customers who consume them in moderation should not be penalized financially because some of their neighbors overdo it.
Let's be fair about alcohol enforcement
• Halt the State Liquor Authority practice of instructing undercover minors to lie about their age to bait stores into illegally selling them beer.
