Incentives

Wisconsin has a wide range of state tax incentives in place to help businesses grow and create jobs, including targeted tax credit, loan, and grant programs.

  • The Manufacturing and Agriculture Credit offers tax credits and exemptions on sales and property tax for qualifying businesses, virtually eliminating tax on income from manufacturing or agricultural activity in the state.
  • Businesses beginning to operate, relocating, or expanding in Wisconsin are eligible for Business Development Tax Credits for creating or retaining full time jobs.
  • Training Grants are available to assist businesses in upgrading or improving job-related skills for full time employees.
  • Certified in Wisconsin sites are shovel-ready to help your business expand or relocate in less time. A Certified In Wisconsin site has the key reviews, documentations and assessments most commonly required for industrial uses.

To learn more about programs and business incentives, visit Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, or visit the Wisconsin Department of Revenue for details on tax incentives for businesses.

Please contact Michael Gay, Senior Vice President of Economic Development, to learn more about incentives available in the Madison Region, as well as loans available to assist with working capital, infrastructure improvements, and training costs.
