NYCIDA programs provide incentives on a discretionary basis that may include:

  • Tax-exempt bond financing – Provides lower-cost capital for acquisition and/or construction of facilities and equipment. Available only to manufacturing companies.
  • Sales and use tax exemptions – Exempts sales tax on purchases and/or leases of machinery, equipment, and construction materials for renovations at approved locations.
  • Mortgage recording tax (MRT) – Waives mortgage recording taxes over the term of the financing.
  • Real estate tax reductions

Below is a list of NYCIDA’s commonly accessed and currently active programs. To determine which program is appropriate for your company, contact NYCIDA.
