Enhanced Enterprise Zone Boards (EEZ)

The Enhanced Enterprise Zone (EEZ) program provides property tax abatement on improvements made to real property to new or expanding businesses that locate in an Enhanced Enterprise Zone.

Projects that qualify for the Enhanced Enterprise Zone tax abatement may receive a standard abatement of 50 percent property tax abatement for a 10-year period for improvements made to real property. Any amount beyond the standard abatement requires a financial analysis by EDCKC and approval by the EEZ Board and City Council.

To qualify for EEZ, your project must:
  • Be located in an Enhanced Enterprise Zone
  • Invest a minimum of $100,000
  • Create a minimum of two new, full-time jobs
  • Average annual wage for new employees must be at or above 80 percent of the county average wage
