Innovation Hot Spots: tax-free incubator zones

To facilitate growth, Governor Cuomo will launch the Innovation Hot Spots Program. The program will designate ten higher education-private sector high-tech innovation incubators for start-up companies through a competition.

Winning Innovation Hot Spots will be tax-free zones, where start-ups and other businesses will not be subject to business, real property, and sales taxes. Any company that emerges from the incubator will be considered part of tax-free Innovation Hot Spots under which neither these companies nor their full-time employees will pay designated taxes for the first five years of the companies' existence.

These incubators will help to foster innovation by offering inventors and entrepreneurs a low-cost and supportive environment in which to work. Winning hot spots will provide start-ups with growth support funding through a one-stop shop for services such as legal and accounting, as well as with office space, networking and other technical assistance.

Prevent landlords from avoiding rent regulation

We passed the toughest rent regulation laws in 30 years. The new laws will protect more than one million New Yorkers from skyrocketing rent by, among other things, raising the deregulation rent threshold for the first time since 1993 and raising the income threshold for the first time since 1997. It will also help prevent landlords from manipulating the system to move apartments out of rent regulation. We executed a new economic development policy with our New York Open for Business campaign and by establishing Regional Economic Development Councils across the state. We passed an affordable energy policy with Recharge NY, on-bill energy efficiency financing, and, after a decade of trying, an Article X electric generation siting law. These programs will lower energy costs, promote energy efficiency, and reduce pollution.
