Job Creation Tax Credit

The Job Creation Tax Credit was adopted by the County Commissioners in 1998 and amended in 2001.  A business must construct or expand by at least 5,000 square feet the premises on which it conducts its business and employ at least 10 individuals in new, full-time positions.  The tax credit is against the increased assessed value of the property for six years; 52% for the first and second years, 39% for the third and fourth year; 26% for the fifth and sixth year.
