The State and local communities offer a variety of tax incentives and innovative solutions for businesses expanding or relocating in Texas.  State and local incentive calculations in Texas are based on job creation, industry sector, expected capital investment and average wages. 

All incentives, whether at the local or state level, are subject to final approval by the appropriate City leadership (City Manager and City Council) or by the appropriate state entities.

If the City and State deem incentives appropriate for this project, a performance-based agreement outlining the company’s commitment will be required and must be approved by the governing entities.

The City and County will work closely with your client on providing the necessary permitting and regulatory support for their operations.
