Tax Benefits for Your Business

ECIDA has incentive programs that reduce taxes and improve the bottom line.  Please read our Tax Incentive Policy to determine if you are eligible. 

Certain businesses such as hotels have restrictions from municipal IDAs, but the ECIDA has some leeway in providing tax incentives to qualifying hotel projects

Whatever the size of the company, our programs can reduce expansion costs up to 15% for eligible targeted companies.

  • Local property tax abatement
  • State and local property tax exemptions
  • Construction materials sales tax exemptions
  • Non-production equipment sales tax exemptions
  • Industrial revenue bonds and leases
  • Mortgage recording tax exemption
  • Federal tax exempt revenue bonds

To apply for these programs you must complete the Preliminary Application for Tax Incentives. Click Create Account in the Login box to begin.

If you are unsure if these programs are right for you, use the Project Benefits Estimator to estimate your project benefits and related fees, or call John Cappellino at 856-6525.

The Application

Estimated time to complete: 1 hour
Estimated time to gather required information: 1 hour

The Preliminary Application lets you save your work as you go, so you don't have to do it all at once. Your application will be private. The username and password you establish will allow you to work on the application at your convenience.

Once your electronic application is complete, we will start reviewing it and will contact you with any additional questions or information we need. All documents will need to be signed before the project can be presented to the monthly meeting of the ECIDA board of directors as required by law.

There are several additional forms that will be needed with your application. Complete and submit your application first, and you will be provided with downloadable versions of these forms.

Thank you for your interest in our services. If at any time you feel you are not getting the quality service you deserve, please contact Steve Weathers, President & CEO, at 856-6525 or send a written detail of your complaint to
