Urgent Sales Tax Action Required!!!


The New York State Car Wash Association (NYSCWA) has taken a stand in opposition to a recommendation made by the New York State Tax Reform and Fairness Commission Report to eliminate the current sales tax exemption for coin-operated carwashes.


Please click here to print our Memorandum and send it to your local senator or assemblyman immediately. You can find them by visiting (for Senators) and (for Assemblymen).


Our goal is to educate these legislators that this reinstatement is unfair and puts our small business community at risk for eliminating jobs and closing our doors.


The NYSCWA is also setting up meetings in Albany with key legislators. We need a strong contingent to do this so if you are interested in participating, please contact our office at 800/287-6604 or 518/280-4767 or email us  today.


Please help us get the word out immediately BEFORE the Governor’s budget is set in January!


Walt Hartl, NYSCWA President
