Possible Incentives for locating in the Gwinnett Place CID
In late December 2012, the Department of Community Affairs approved a new Opportunity Zone for the area in and around the Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District. Under this State of Georgia job tax credit, new or existing businesses that create two or more jobs can receive a tax credit of up to $3,500 per job. The job tax credits can be used against 100 percent of the business’s income tax liability and state payroll withholding once your income tax liability has been exhausted. Click here to view a map of Gwinnett’s newest Opportunity Zone. For additional information on the Opportunity Zone, visit the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Web site. The Opportunity Zone designation is retroactive to the beginning of 2012. Any businesses that added jobs in the Gwinnett Place Opportunity Zone are eligible to receive the tax credit.
Because area commercial property owners formed a CID, newly arriving businesses could qualify for incentives designed to foster success:
- Reduced costs for certain applications and permits
- Reduced business occupation taxes
- Reduced water/sewer charges
- Acceleration of development reviews
- Acceleration of public hearings
- Tax increment financing through the Gwinnett Place Tax Allocation District (TAD)
Targeted industries eligible for special consideration include headquarters, advanced communications, IT, healthcare, life sciences and manufacturing/logistics. Qualifying businesses must meet certain employment and investment thresholds, which are more easily obtained in the CID. Information on economic development incentives is available at the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce.
