Credits & Incentives

Are you aware of all the credits and incentives available in the areas where you operate? There may be programs for job creation or retention, or site expansion or relocation. You could even be located in an enterprise zone without knowing it. Merit Advisors helps you secure all the credits and incentives you’re eligible for—including the ones that other firms tend to overlook.

Our process typically includes the following services:

Explore Incentive Opportunities – Complete a site evaluation, identify and negotiate business incentive savings opportunities including:

  • Negotiated tax abatements/rebates under programs such as:
    • Texas Chapter 312/313 and 380/381
    • Louisiana Industrial Tax Exemption Program
    • Oklahoma Manufacturing Exemption
  • Cash grants
  • Tax refunds/credits
  • Workforce training grants
  • Assistance from counties/cities and utility companies
  • For greenfield sites:
    • Free/reduced cost land
    • Impact/permit fee reductions
    • Infrastructure assistance
