Legislation To Exempt Baby Products From Sales Tax Advances

Legislation sponsored by Senators Owen Henry and Kristin Corrado that would exempt the sale of baby products from sales tax was unanimously passed today by the Senate Health, Human Services, and Senior Citizens Committee.

“As inflation continues to be a struggle for families across New Jersey, I am pleased that my first bill to advance out of committee will allow parents, guardians, and families to keep more money in their pockets,” said Senator Henry (R-12). “This is a commonsense change to the State sales tax law as many other critical care items are already exempt from the tax.”

“The joy of welcoming a child for new parents can be stressful and expensive, as families work to make ends meet during the State’s affordability crisis,” said Senator Corrado (R-40). “Exempting baby necessities from the state sales tax is the least we can do to make life a little easier for new parents and families across the Garden State.”

Henry and Corrado’s bill, S-3248, would provide an exemption from the sales and use tax for the sale of cribs, child restraint systems, nursing bottles, and strollers.

New Jersey exempted diapers and baby formula from the state sales tax decades ago. Car seats, bottles, cribs and strollers are currently subject to the 6.625% tax.
