Tax Reduction Programs

Property Tax Abatements-All or part of the value of improvements created by a company is partial exempt from the ad-valorem taxes for a period up to 10 years.

Commercial Green Building Tax Abatements-If LEED conditions are met, approval for partial tax abatement of the incremental investment associated with obtaining certification.

Foreign Trade Zones- Specially designated area in or adjacent to a U.S. Customs Port of Entry, which is considered to be outside the Customs Territory of the U.S. - FTZ procedures allow domestic activity involving foreign items to take place as if it were outside U.S. Customs territory, thus offsetting Customs advantages available to overseas producers who export in competition with products made here.

Historic Site Tax Exemptions-Provides for exemption from taxation of part or all of the assessed value of a structure “designated" as a historically or archeologically significant site in need of tax relief to encourage its preservation.
