        Business Incentives/Forms

        Making Your Decision Easier

        State and local governments know that economic development is critical to the success of our communities. For that reason, ordinances have been enacted to provide significant incentives to locate here-and make your decision to locate or expand here a lot easier!


        The City of Live Oak Economic Development Corporation was created in 1996 to expand and diversify the city's economic base. The EDC has used tax abatements and tax increment reinvestment zones to facilitate quality development. The EDC is open to using other facilitating mechanisms, but will consider each on a case-by-case basis. The EDC's incentive package is determined by five criteria:

        • the number of jobs created
        • the average wage and the gross annual payroll generated
        • capital investment
        • the amount of new property taxes generated
        • the amount of sales tax generated

        Criteria used to determine incentive package:

        • The number of jobs created
        • The average wage and the gross annual payroll generated
        • Capital investment
        • The amount of new property taxes generated
        • The amount of sales tax generated.

        Depending upon these factors, the City will carefully examine, but consider:

        • Tax Abatements
        • Reinvestment Zones (Tax Increment Financing)
        • Chapter 380
        • Sales Tax Rebates/Other

At the same time, aspects of the program will help to avoid poor quality design decisions that detract from the aesthetics of the business districts. The program also provides an objective basis by which to evaluate projects that come up for review. Ultimately, the design, renovation, and repair projects will enhance the economic success of Live Oak by making it a more inviting place for shoppers and businesses.
        • Program Funding - Funding available is basede on a reimbursement up to a maximum of $2,000.00 per business. The cumulative amount awarded by the Live Oak Economic Development Corporation (LOEDC) shall not exceed $45,000.00 for the fiscal year of this program.
