Opportunity Zones

Local governments which undertake redevelopment and revitalization efforts in certain older commercial and industrial areas can now qualify those areas for the State’s maximum state job tax credit of $3,500 per job. The incentive which is available for new or existing businesses which create two or more jobs are credits which can be taken against the business’s income tax liability and state payroll withholding. The credits are available for areas designated by DCA as “Opportunity Zones”. DCA will consider designations for areas that are within or adjacent to a census block group with 15% or greater poverty where an enterprise zone or urban redevelopment plan exists.
