Quality Jobs


The Quality Jobs (QJ) Program provides cash rebate to companies that create well-paid jobs and promote economic development in Louisiana: Up to a 6% rebate on annual payroll expenses for up to 10 years and either a state sales/use tax rebate on capital expenses or a 1.5% project facility expense rebate for qualifying expenses. 

NOTE: The City of New Orleans does not currently issue local sales tax rebate through the QJ program. However, sales/use tax rebate is avaible to those eligible through the state.
