Tax Incentive Guide for Businesses


Date Published: June 2003


This guide summarizes the rules applicable to Federal tax incentives available to business­es operating in EZs, ECs, and RCs and to those hiring residents of these areas. As you use the guide, keep in mind that some tax incentives will work well for labor-intensive busi­nesses, whereas others benefit those with capital needs. Some incentives make sense only for large companies while others work best for small ones. Several incentives discussed in this guide also apply to businesses and residents outside EZ/EC/RC communities. Please contact your tax attorney or accountant for details regarding your eligibility to claim these incentives. The following sections list the incentives discussed in this guide.
