START-UP NY (SUNY Tax-free Areas to Revitalize and Transform Upstate New York) offers new and expanding businesses the opportunity to operate tax-free for 10 years on or near eligible university or college campuses in New York State. This partnership gives schools the opportunity to integrate learning opportunities for students through internships at the participating businesses, and it gives businesses access to top talent, industry and academic experts, and research facilities.
Participating businesses are given the opportunity to operate state and local tax-free at space designated under SUNY Buffalo State's campus plan for START-UP NY, about a mile away from the college campus.
If you qualify, your employees will also pay no state personal income taxes. At SUNY Buffalo State, we can help you navigate START-UP NY benefits and determine if you are eligible for academic alignment with our program. Visit the START-UP NY website for more information on eligibility and requirements.
