NECLA’s Engagement:
As soon as word came that the sales tax reform was underway, The NECLA Board of Directors engaged a lobbyist to protect the sales tax exemption for Maine Laundry Owners.

What you can do to help!

  1. There is strength in numbers! The most immediate need is fundraising. NECLA is asking for a contribution of $250 to $500 for each laundry you own. This is a wise investment when considering the sales tax will cost the average laundry owner $5,000 to $10,000 per year – every year! To contribute, send checks made out to NECLA: NECLA, P.O. Box 56, Danvers, MA 01923.
  2. Reach out to your legislators and let them know (politely!) what impact losing the sales tax exemption would have on your business. You can play an important role in educating your representatives about this critical issue!
