Manufacturing, distribution, call center or data center projects involving a significant capital investment and number of new jobs may qualify for Jackson-Madison County’s aggressive Payment in Lieu of Tax (PILOT) program. This program can enable a company to substantially reduce its tax burden during the critical early phases of operation. Companies are eligible to take advantage of the PILOT by entering into a lease-back arrangement with the Jackson Industrial Development Bond Board.
A PILOT is offered as an incentive to both new and expanding companies. It can apply to industrial real property, such as the land and building, as well as personal property, such as equipment.
PILOTs are considered on a case-by-case basis and are based on an analysis of job creation, capital investment and wage rates.
