Industrial Development Agencies
Chemung County Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA)
The Chemung County IDA, if it so chooses and so long as a project is eligible, may provide a variety of tax incentives, financing, and/or related benefits to a broad range of projects that provide a positive economic impact within Chemung County, as follows:
Industrial Revenue Bonds - The CCIDA may issue debt in the form of bonds or notes. The interest on such debt is exempt from federal and state income taxes. This enables a borrower to access capital at below market rates.
Real Property Tax Abatement - The CCIDA has adopted a Uniform Tax Exemption Policy (attached) which can abate a portion of county, school, and municipal taxes for a specific period of time. This assistance enables a project beneficiary to lower operating costs while expanding or developing a new project facility.
Sales Tax Abatement - An IDA project can be exempt from paying sales tax on tangible property during the construction or renovation of a project facility.
Mortgage Tax Abatement - An IDA project can be exempt from paying New York State mortgage tax or deed transfer taxes.
Low Interest Loans - The CCIDA administers a C.R.E.D.I.T. Fund which can provide below market rate loans to provide "gap" financing or incentive financing to facilitate an economic development project. http://www.chemungcountyida.com/
