Application Documents

The law requires that applicants enter into a formal agreement with the Secretary of Commerce. The agreement allows the vessel's owner to deposit tax deferred funds which can be used for the construction, reconstruction, or acquisition and reconstruction of a qualified vessel. Applications are accepted at any time, however a complete application must be submitted by your tax due date including extensions to be effective for that particular tax year.

These forms are all .pdf files. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view .pdf files. Various versions are available for different systems. To download Adobe Acrobat Reader for FREE!
