Program Description

Provides for a statewide job tax credit for any business or headquarters of any such business engaged in manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, processing, telecommunications, tourism, or research and development industries, but does not include retail businesses. If other requirements are met, job tax credits are available to businesses of any nature, including retail businesses, in counties recognized and designated as the 40 least developed counties.

Counties and certain census tracts in the state are ranked and placed in economic tiers using the following factors:

1. highest unemployment rate;
2. lowest per capita income; and
3. highest percentage of residents whose incomes are below the poverty level.
