Sales and Use Tax Exclusion (STE) Program
Designed to provide California manufacturers with a tax exclusion on purchased products, components or systems.
If you have any questions about the STE program, please contact Xee Moua at (916) 653-3303.
The California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority (CAEATFA) supports California's mission to provide financial incentives to cutting-edge companies by offering a sales and use tax exclusion to manufacturers that promote alternative energy and advanced transportation. These manufacturers create tens of thousands of high-paying, permanent jobs that bolster the state's economy. The STE program is currently authorized through 2020.
* The Sales and Use Tax Exclusion for Manufacturers Program is expected to be oversubscribed at the July 16 Board meeting and will have reached the 2019 Annual $100 million statutory cap. Applications are no longer being accepted for 2019. We anticipate accepting new applications for the 2020 calendar year, so please check back for future application deadlines.
