In his presentation, Kevin discussed tax credit implications from the new 2022 legislation and proposed Part 375 Regulations, as well as best practices for record keeping in anticipation of the inevitable audit of a brownfield tax credit claim by the NYS Tax Department.  The attendees were able to identify the key differences in the Brownfield Cleanup Program under the 2022 legislation, and have a more detailed understanding of the NYS audit process.
