Brownfield Credit Reports through 2017

For tax years beginning on or after April 1, 2005, a taxpayer participating in the Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) who has entered into a brownfield site cleanup agreement (BCA) with the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) may be eligible for three tax credits relating to the cleanup and redevelopment of a brownfield site.  These tax credits are:

  • the brownfield redevelopment tax credit - consisting of the site preparation, on-site groundwater remediation, and tangible property credit components
  • the remediated brownfield credit for real property taxes, and
  • the environmental remediation insurance credit.

Each year by January 31st, the Tax Department is mandated to report on the claims for each of these three credits.

The following data sets are accessible through New York State's Open Data site, Open New York.  Statistical table views are available to provide tables comparable to those found in prior year reports.  All data can be downloaded in multiple static formats.
