Excerpt from Court Holds Television Programming Is Included in the Property Factor Regardless of Delivery Method -

The Third Department has held that television programming delivered via satellite was included in the property factor, rejecting the decision of the Tax Appeals Tribunal, which had held that the programming was excluded as intangible property, and the position of the Department of Taxation and Finance, which had excluded the programming from the factor because it was delivered via satellite rather than on videotape. Matter of Meredith Corporation v. Tax Appeals Trib., NY Slip Op. 7909 (3d Dep’t, Nov. 21, 2012).
