PROMOTING BUSINESS EXPANSION
Wisconsin has the expertise, programs and support network to help you and the communities in which you operate. We offer loans, loan guarantees and tax credits to help companies grow and succeed in Wisconsin. For businesses that do not have significant Wisconsin income tax liabilities, Economic Development Tax Credits can be transferred to a third party.
STRENGTHENING YOUR BUSINESS WITH TAX INCENTIVES
To encourage business growth and job creation, we provide tax credits and exemptions on sales and property tax for qualifying manufacturing and agricultural businesses. In fact, you can virtually eliminate the tax on income from manufacturing activity in the state with the Manufacturing and Agriculture Credit. When fully phased in, the effective corporate tax rate for manufacturing and agricultural activities will be just 0.4 percent.
For businesses planning to move to and hire workers in Wisconsin, we offer Economic Development Tax Credits based on the creation or retention of full-time jobs, depending upon the wage range and number of jobs to be created.
MAKING IT EASIER TO EXPAND IN WISCONSIN
Through our Certified In Wisconsin Program, we have standardized the process of identifying development-ready sites to help expedite business expansion, saving time, money and potential risk.
HELPING YOU BUILD YOUR WORKFORCE
As part of our $150 million commitment to workforce development, we offer Training Grants to businesses that want to upgrade or improve the job-related skills of their full-time employees.
