The Enterprise Zone Program is a jobs incentive program providing Louisiana income and franchise tax credits to businesses hiring at least 35% of net, new jobs from targeted groups. Enterprise Zones (EZs) are areas with high unemployment, low income, or a high percentage of residents receiving some public assistance. A business is not required to be located in the EZ, but must create permanent jobs at the EZ site (see eligibility requirements on the website). Benefits include a one-time $2500 credit per job or a 1.5% Refundable Investment Tax Credit.
