Business License Incentive Program
A new business incentive program launched this month is accepting applications. Many new and existing businesses are eligible for a business license rebate.
The program's goal is to attract new establishments - like grocery stores and childcare centers - in certain areas of the City. But the program is available to many others:
- Artist (established in specific areas)
- Retail (established in specific areas)
- Corporate Headquarters
- Grocery Store (established in Special Emphasis Neighborhoods)
- Child Care Businesses
- Any Commercial Annexation (voluntary)
New qualifying businesses can receive a 5-year, 100% business license rebate. Existing qualifying businesses are eligible for a 5-year, 50% business license rebate. Eligible businesses must apply for the program each year it is available.
Visit the program's website to see maps where the program is applicable and to apply for the rebate.
