 Who Can Take Advantage of Tax-Exempt Municipal Leasing?

  1. Possess the power of eminent domain,
  2. Possess police powers, or
  3. Levy taxes.

Just because an agency is supported by government funds, or is not subject to sales tax, does not ensure qualification. Non-profit corporations do not meet the standards to qualify for tax-exempt municipal leasing. State and local governments and their political subdivisions, qualify for the financial and administrative benefits of tax-exempt municipal leasing. Among those qualified entities are: 

  • States
  • Counties
