Case No.: 19-T-013 determined the division was within its province to deny the credits allocated in August 2015 after the taxpayer’s development remained idle from October 2016 to March 2018, saying the taxpayer’s quarterly reports “lacked the requisite documentation and the Taxpayer did not supply any documentation despite requests from the Division.” The division said the decision was consistent with statute and regulation.
