Tax & Incentive Profile
INFORMATION FOR MISSOURI IS PRESENTED BELOW
Enhanced Enterprise Zones are specified geographic areas designated by local governments and certified by the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED). Individual business eligibility will be determined by the zone based on the creation of sustainable jobs in a targeted industry or demonstrated impact on local industry cluster development. Gambling establishments, retail trade, food and drinking places, educational services, religious organizations, and public administrators are prohibited from receiving the state tax credits. Service industries can be eligible if a majority of their annual revenues will be derived from services provided out of the state. DED will consult with the local government in determining eligibility.
See the Job Creation Incentives section of this publication for detailed information about the Missouri Works program.
