Bringing Business to Wisconsin
Wisconsin has a wide range of state tax incentives to encourage business growth and job creation. We offer tax credits and exemptions on sales and property tax for qualifying manufacturing and agricultural businesses. We also provide incentives for businesses planning to move to and hire workers in Wisconsin. For those looking to invest in Wisconsin companies, capital gains and early stage investment incentives are available. And through our Certified In Wisconsin program, we have standardized the process of identifying development-ready sites to help expedite business expansion.
- Manufacturing and Agriculture Credit—Virtually eliminates the tax on income from manufacturing activity in the state
- Economic Development Tax Credits—Available for the creation or retention of full-time jobs, based on the wage range and number of jobs to be created

- Certified In Wisconsin—Standardized certification of ready-to-develop sites to help make your business expansion productive in less time
Helping Businesses and Communities Succeed
Wisconsin has the expertise, programs and support network to help you and the communities in which you operate succeed. We can help make loans available to assist with working capital, equipment purchases and training costs. And, with our direct loans, we can provide assistance for land acquisition, private infrastructure improvements and building construction. We do this because we know that strong businesses help establish strong communities.
