Most counties in New York State offer a variety of tax exemptions as an economic development incentive to encourage job growth and commercial development. These can include sales tax exemptions for construction related expenses and equipment purchases, mortgage tax exemptions, and PILOT (payments in lieu of taxes) agreements that reduce real estate taxes on certain commercial developments. Depending on the size of your project, these savings could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. Unlike most grants, these savings are available to new and expanding businesses. Choice Words can guide you through this technical process. We begin with a free consultation to decide if your project fits the parameters of these programs. If we decide that your project is a fit, we then work with you to fill out the proper paperwork, communicate with your local Industrial Development Agency (IDA) about the project, seek draft approval, and plan a meeting time for you to present.
