Incentives & Financing

Incentives and Financing

The State of Nevada, through the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, offers a variety of incentives to help qualifying companies make the decision to do business in the state, including sales tax abatements on capital equipment purchases, sales and use tax deferral on capital equipment purchases, abatements on personal and modified business taxes, real property tax abatements for recycling, assistance with the cost of intellectual property development, and employee training grants. The State now offers abatements on aviation parts and data centers, as well.

In addition, various Counties and Communities may also offer an incentive package depending on the economic impact of the prospective company. These incentives may include a reduced price on industrial land, waiving of utility hookup fees, or assistance in infrastructure development.
