We apologize for this unfortunate circumstance!
Tarisio is committed to correct practices and we thank you greatly for your patience and understanding. For the time being, some of this remains out of our immediate control.
Though New York State law A10143 is well intentioned, it’s created a burdensome situation while the state determines a licensing and enforcement scheme. This situation should be temporary, and we believe it is. We’re working closely with attorneys and well-meaning state employees to navigate these regulations for our clients. We hope to have a resolution as soon as possible.
It is our top priority to ensure your convenient and successful bidding.
