The Advantage Jobs Incentive Program is a rebate program designed to encourage businesses that create new quality jobs to locate in the state. Jobs must meet or exceed the average annual wage of the state or the county in which the company locates, whichever is lower. The amount available for rebate is the lesser of the qualified Mississippi personal income tax withheld or a legal maximum of 4% of applicable wage. Once the amount available is determined, the eligible company will receive 90% if the annual average wage is at least 110% of the lesser of the average county or state wage.
