  • Real Estate Tax Exemptions: Companies utilize a “PILOT” (Payment In Lieu Of Taxes) program to make payments to the IDA, potentially saving millions of dollars.
  • Sales and use tax exemptions: Companies pay no sales or use tax on construction or equipment purchases that occur during the construction phase of a new project or expansion. Through this program, companies save 8.625% (current sales tax rate) on all qualifying purchases.
  • Mortgage recording tax abatements: Companies can receive a full exemption from mortgage recording tax for any mortgage recorded in connection with a project. Through this program, companies save 1.05% (current mortgage recording tax rate) on qualifying mortgages.
  • Tax exempt financing: The Nassau County IDA can issue both tax-exempt and taxable bonds, making the bond proceeds available to an eligible company. Financing through bonds can save companies a significant amount of their financing costs.
