ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo is promoting his plan for new tax breaks to help New York’s beer, wine, cider and spirits makers.

Cuomo’s budget proposal before the state Legislature would expand an exemption on a “use tax” for wine tastings to the beer, cider and spirits industries. A related proposal would expand the use tax exemption for all craft beverage producers by including an exemption for off-premises tastings.

The governor says the tax breaks would allow craft beverage producers to better market their products and reinvest in their businesses.

The budget is due April 1.
