Is Your Company Based in New York State? Yes? Get Tax Free Computer Hardware

Just learned something pretty great after so many years of starting companies – if your company is based in New York State, then you can purchase all of your hardware tax free.

This is something that must have its origins in the early Dot Com days but it’s still in effect and you should take advantage of it if you can. Just bring the form to your local Apple or whichever store where they will surely look at you with a blank stare, and save hundreds of dollars per system purchased.

I would like to think that there are equivalents in other tech heavy states (I am looking at you CA and TX)
