Economic Incentives You Do Not Want To Miss1 min read

by | Business Tax Planning

There are State and Local Government economic incentives that are often missed by growing new businesses because they do not apply early enough.  Or companies think their project was not large enough or important enough to warrant said incentives.
There are specific conditions and events that act as key triggers to help companies determine whether they qualify for economic incentives.  It is important that companies continually ask themselves if they are hitting the following triggers:

  • Adding Jobs
  • Buying, Leasing or Building a Facility
  • Relocating Operations
  • Expanding or Downsizing
  • Acquisition or Merger
  • Training Incentives
  • Investing in Research and Development

Timing is crucial for any company who is interested in obtaining incentives and these incentive opportunities can be jeopardized if a company engages in any of the following actions before starting the incentive negotiation process:

  • Sign or Extend a Facility Lease
  • Purchase or Expand a Building
  • Pull Any Permits or File Applications
  • Hire New Employees
  • Purchase and Install New Equipment
  • Make a Public Announcement

Although a company should never select a location based solely on incentives, financial assistance can help offset a project and/or operating costs can become the deciding factor if all elements are equal.
