Credits & Incentives Overview

To attract and retain growing businesses, state and local governments often provide valuable economic incentives including tax abatements, payroll tax credits, infrastructure grants, low- or no-interest loans, training grants, tax increment financing, and more.

When you’re ready to relocate, expand, make capital investments or add new jobs, McGuire Sponsel can help you take advantage of these economic incentives and guide you through the process.

General Atomics

General Atomics planned on investing over $60 million in their current Lee County, Mississippi location. The investment will include four new buildings and the addition of new equipment and machinery. The company looked to McGuire Sponsel to procure incentives for the growth project. McGuire Sponsel worked with Lee County to negotiate a fee in lieu of taxes (FILOT).
