Empire Zone/Qualified Empire Zone Enterprise Credits:  Tax Years 2003 and 2004

The Empire Zone/Qualified Empire Zone Enterprise Credits (EZ/QEZE) annual statistical report results from a legislative mandate. The legislation, enacted in Chapter 63 of the Laws of 2005, mandates the reporting of detailed data for each zone or zone equivalent area and for each qualified empire zone enterprise, showing the usage and value of the various credits offered by the EZ/QEZE program.  It also requires classification of the data by amount of entire net income for corporate tax claimants and adjusted gross income for personal income tax claimants, as well as base year and taxable year employment levels.

The report includes selected data from the mandated study for EZ/QEZE credits for corporate taxpayers, S-corporations, and personal income taxpayers.  Full data from the mandated study cannot be released publicly due to taxpayer confidentiality provisions.  This edition of the report provides final information for liability year 2003 corporate tax credits allowed, preliminary information for liability year 2004 corporate tax credits claimed, and final information for tax year 2004 personal income tax credits allowed.
