Assembly Bill 6008, introduced on March 30, 2023, would impose a $3 delivery surcharge on any item purchased online and delivered within New York City. The person selling the item to be delivered within New York City is liable for the surcharge and the surcharge “shall be passed along to the purchaser and separately stated on any receipt” provided to the purchaser.

Deliveries of food, diapers, baby formula, drugs and medicines are exempt from the surcharge under this proposed legislation. If enacted, the surcharge would take effect on January 1, 2025.
