The last thing a town or city desires is empty retail space, vacant manufacturing footprint or unoccupied commercial floor space. To entice occupants and jobs, cities and states will offer tax credits to employers who plan to relocate or grow within their boundaries. National, state and local governments often corroborate to offer tax incentives to retain existing businesses and to attract new investments. Each state and local incentive package may differ in specifics, but in general government officials have the discretion to offer training grants, personal and real estate tax abatements and even state and local tax credits to thriving companies.
