We propose the creation of a NYS Tax Credit for qualified manufacturers based on a calculation of employment of New Yorkers: number of jobs, total payroll, and number of years in business.
We support the extension and expansion of the current $1.25M NYS Manufacturing Intermediary Apprenticeship Program (NYSMIAP).
We support NYS Senate bill 7561A which would extend the zero percent income tax rate to all manufacturers in NYS - currently it only applies to C Corporations.
We support a discounted rate on EZ Pass charges for manufactured goods being transported within NYS for processing, assembly, distribution or sale.
New York needs ground-breaking legislation to promote our state as a destination for skilled workers. We propose that all employees at qualified manufacturing companies have 50% of their individual annual NYS payroll taxes be disbursed back to them as a housing subsidy to increase retention and attraction.
