Statement: Nassau Residents Deserve Aggressive Gas Tax Relief(MINEOLA, N.Y.) – On Monday, May 9, the Legislature’s Majority withdrew a proposal that would have shortened Nassau County’s gasoline sales tax holiday by a month (to Dec. 1, 2022). However, they also took no action on the Minority’s proposal to make portions of gasoline prices sales tax-free above $2/gallon and extend the gas tax holiday to March 1, 2023.
In response, Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview), ranking member of the Legislature’s finance committee, issued the following statement:
“While we are gratified that the State’s recent action seems to have staved off the Majority’s proposal to shorten Nassau County’s gas tax holiday, we cannot afford to rest on our laurels when taxpayers need relief at the pump. The Minority Caucus will continue to advocate for extending the gas tax holiday and ensuring that Nassau consumers receive the maximum level of savings allowable under state law.”
