Oct 3rd, 2016

The New York Department of Taxation and Finance ("Department") issued a press release reminding website designers and software developers about a hardware exemption.

The exemption applies to purchases of computer system hardware used more than 50% of the time to (1) design and develop computer software for sale, (2) provide website design and development services for sale, or (3) provide a combination of both. The Department stated that the exemption helps enhance New York's reputation as an attractive destination for self-employed website developers, software service providers, and high-tech businesses.
