In a letter ruling, the New York City Department of Finance (Department) concluded that a company licensing office suites to third parties was not exempt from the Unincorporated Business Tax (UBT). The Department found that the company provided services that went beyond being incidental to exempt holding, leasing or managing real property. Accordingly, the company was subject to the UBT.
