New York’s COVID-19 Capital Costs Tax Credit Program

On October 26, 2022, the State of New York announced a new tax credit program. The COVID-19 Capital Costs Tax Credit Program will subsidize small businesses for COVID-19-related expenses incurred between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2022. 

Eligible businesses must: 

  • Operate in New York
  • Have 100 or fewer employees
  • Have $2.5 million or less of gross receipts for the 2021 tax year
  • Have at least $2,000 in qualifying expenses

Qualifying expenses include disinfecting supplies, physical barriers, hand sanitizing stations, respiratory devices (such as air purifying systems), signage related to COVID-19, contactless payment equipment, and more. Please visit the New York website for a complete listing of qualifying expenses.

What this means for you

If you own and operate a small business in New York, you can receive 50% of qualifying expenses up to $50,000, for a maximum tax credit of $25,000. 

This program is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds—$250 million—are depleted.
