Applicant Procedures
Sales and Use Tax Exclusion (STE) Program: Conveyance/Reconveyance


In order to receive the sales and use tax exclusion for the STE Program, Applicants must convey title of their purchased Qualified Property to the Authority for purposes of reconveyance back to the Applicant. This is done through a conveyance/reconveyance agreement (the “Transaction Agreement”). Each time the Applicant makes a purchase or group of purchases they will need to submit a Transaction Agreement for approval by the Authority.
