Tax Change

The New York Times reports that among the changes in the new budget approved by the New York State Legislature last week is a requirement that "nonprofit organizations like museums ... collect sales taxes on T-shirts, mugs and other items."

András Szántó: "The same politicians who walked way from half a billion dollars in annual revenues from a Manhattan traffic congestion charge will combat future deficits with a tithe on postcards and mouse pads."
