State Tax Credits & Incentives Attractive Rewards
States and localities are increasingly offering tax incentives to encourage relocation and favored forms of economic activity. Such incentives include credits against income tax, payments in lieu of tax (PILOT) agreements, or reductions or eliminations of property tax for specified periods of time. Eligibility for incentives may be contingent on promising to employ a specified number of people, engaging in manufacturing activity, a specified degree of capital investment, or developing and cleaning up a contaminated area.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
