Sales Tax Exemption
Sales tax exemption for certain types of high-tech manufacturing or research equipment. Businesses can keep the savings or take some or all of the amount they saved in sales tax and contribute it to a university or community college. If the school accepts the contribution, it must match the funds and then use the money to provide services or buy equipment for the company. The Times obtained a list of 25 companies approved for the sales tax exemption, but state officials have declined to provide specific information about the tax breaks.
