The Ontario County Industrial Development Agency (OCIDA) provides a variety of tax incentives designed to help businesses looking to build or improve their manufacturing or production facilities. OCIDA’s standard 10-year payment-in-lieu-of-tax agreement provides five years of abated real property taxes on construction-related assessment increases with a 20% step up for the remaining five years. Sales tax on all construction related costs and mortgage recording tax abatements are also important benefits to these transactions. Sales-tax only products for one-time, large equipment purchases and for information technology purchases spanning a 10-year period are available on a stand-alone basis.
