LEGAL ALERT UPDATE
At the recent Economic Development Council annual meeting held in Cooperstown, the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (“Tax & Finance”) clarified Technical Memorandum TSB-M-14(1.1)S issued on February 12, 2014. The new Form ST-123 will be required only for projects that close, or extensions granted, on and after June 1, 2014. Agents and subagents for projects that closed prior to June 1, 2014 (“Grandfathered Projects”) should continue to use the sales and use tax exemption letter issued by the industrial development agency. If any vendor requests the new form for a Grandfathered Project, please call us and we will provide the necessary documentation.
