NYC businesses that decline to accept cash will face a fine of up to $ 1,000 – Telemundo New York (47)

A new law, which just came into effect in New York City, prohibits companies from refusing to accept cash payment from their customers.

Since November 19, restaurants and companies must accept cash as a form of payment, this in view of the growing trend of accepting only debit or credit card payments through applications.

The bill, sponsored by now-elected Congressman Ritchie Torres, was approved in January by the City Council, prior to the COVID pandemic, but has so far gone into effect.

The Department of Consumer Affairs is in charge of law enforcement.

Customers can call 311 or file a complaint online. Businesses that violate the rule face up to a $ 1,000 fine.
