Taxes & Incentives


Economic Development Incentives: The BiggerPicture

As competition between cities and states increases for jobs and investments, government at all levels is offering a variety of creative incentives to attract industry to their location.  And because industry is focusing on the all-in costs of doing business with an emphasis on reducing costs through consolidations and right sizing of operations, the bigger picture encompasses more than just tax incentives alone.  

The business climate of a city--are city leaders business people who will be on your side--along with available skilled labor, reasonable energy and real estate costs joins availability of incentives as increasingly important influences on location decisions.  

Is the community you're considering going to be proactive in seeing this bigger picture and helping you navigate it? Innovative methods of reducing industrial start-up costs make communities more competitive when incentivizing industrial prospects that have very individualized needs. That's why we created a long-term vision for Pasadena's future through our Pasadena Second Century Corp.

Pasadena, Texas understands the bigger picture. That's why we've streamlined the permitting process to some of the shortest approval times in our region.  We know tax abatements can't help a business that hasn't opened its door yet because of painfully slow permitting times. And we understand that a thriving local economy starts with a municipal government that works to minimize stumbling blocks to success...while maintaining a regulatory environment that assures quality of life for all residents.
