The Enterprise Zone Program provides certain tax incentives to corporations, partnerships and proprietorships that locate or expand within designated Enterprise Zones. In addition to state-level tax incentives, businesses may also receive local tax and non-tax incentives for locating or expanding within a designated Enterprise Zone. Section 5 of the Alabama Enterprise Zone Program offers the following tax incentives: Credit based on income tax liability from Enterprize Zone Project Operations; Credit for new capital investment; and a company may claim a credit of up to $1,000 per new permanent employee for training new permanent employees in new skill areas. Section 11 offers certain exemptions.
