Enterprise Zone


The Enterprise Zone (EZ) Program is a jobs incentive program that provides Louisiana income and franchise tax credits to new or existing businesses located in officially designated Enterprise Zones and Economic Development Zones. The credits and rebates are based on jobs created for qualified residents. The program requires that at least 50% of those net new jobs be from one of four targeted groups.

NOTE: The City of Orleans does not currently issue local sales tax rebate through the EZ Program. However, income tax credits and sales/use tax rebates are available to those eligible through the state.
