That's fine.
But is it going back to 8 and change or is it sticking to 4.

The NY Gov's tax trend is very regressive.

I think it's only a matter of time for Bloomie to reinstate the NYC portion of sales tax.

Sure, only if one can find EG, JL, Lattanzi, Borrelli, Kiton.... in Jersey.

Ummm...Kindly divulge where you have been getting your EG, JL, Lattanzi, Borrelli, Kiton for under 110, because everything above 110 has always been taxed at the State rate anyway.

I can't get any of those for under $110. You are missing the point. Since I can't find any of those in NJ, so the sale tax rate difference between NYC & NJ doesn't affect my shopping habit in clothings. But for electronics I always shop online from vendors outside of NYS.
