Are tax incentives and other benefits offered on a case-by-case basis?
No. “Case-by-Case” is contrary to the intent of the Enterprise Zone Act. Tax incentives must be offered uniformly and equitably by class. The local ordinance authorizing tax incentives, such as property tax abatement, extends the incentives automatically through eligibility criteria, such as class of property (I.e., residential, commercial and industrial) and formulas (i.e., percentages and number of years available).
