The Texas Enterprise Zone Program

This economic development tool allows local communities to partner with the state of Texas to encourage job creation and capital investment in economically distressed areas. Local communities can nominate a new or expanding business as an "enterprise project." Approved projects are eligible to apply for state sales and use tax refunds on qualified expenditures. The level and amount of refund depends on the capital investment and jobs created at the qualified business site.

For more information on the Texas Enterprise Zone Program, visit the Governor's Economic Development Finance department online, or call 512-936-0100.
