StartUp NY

StartUp NY LogoStartUp NY is an innovative program to help start, expand or relocate qualified businesses to tax-free zones in New York State. Qualified businesses participating in the StartUp NY program pay no business, corporate, sales, property, state or local taxes, no franchise fees, and no income tax for the company or its employees for 10 full years. Tax-free zones created through StartUp NY are established in connection with college and university campuses across the state, allowing participating businesses to make use of these institutions’ state-of-the-art facilities and talent, and help them connect with an expansive infrastructure with national and global access. By attracting new businesses to our area, StartUp NY will help create jobs, build valuable lasting partnerships and encourage new investment in the Mohawk Valley.
