A New York tax tribunal denied a bid by Verizon Wireless for a $19 million sales and use tax refund on purchases of computer hardware, software, and related services.

Verizon, the U.S. cellphone provider for some 100 million customers, petitioned for the refund revision after a July 2008-June 2010 audit. It argued that purchases it made to expand its data center systems in Orangeburg, N.Y., were covered by a New York exemption for telecommunications or internet-access hardware and software.
