A small brew pub wanting to expand into the risky world of brewing bigger time is getting ten years of no property or sales tax courtesy of the NY program you see advertised all the time.
The business in Hamilton, NY has affiliated with a local SUNY college and that's the nexus for the freebies.
These zones linked to colleges have proved a dubious program. I've sat in on the meetings locally and no one takes it seriously.
The rules for the zones don't require the business on campus and indeed may be nowhere near it.
