Chapter 59 of the Laws of 2010 requires the Tax Department to produce an Excelsior jobs program credit report by June 30th of each year. Information in the report is based on the information filed with the department during the previous calendar year, to the extent that it is practicable to use the information. The mandate requires the department to include the name of each taxpayer claiming the Excelsior tax credit, the amount of each credit component earned by the taxpayer, and any other information received regarding the credit which the commissioner deems useful in evaluating the use of the credit.
The following data set is accessible through New York State's Open Data site, Open New York. All data can be downloaded in multiple static formats.
