Jenkins County Incentives
Jenkins County offers a number of incentives for growing or locating a business or industry here.
The Jenkins County Development Authority assists companies in obtaining any necessary environmental permitting required from State and Federal agencies. Locally, we offer a One-Stop-Shop permitting process.
As part of the incentive package, the Jenkins County Development Authority will coordinate with the various utility operators that serve the proposed site to provide the most aggressive pricing possible for utility services. (However, all prices are subject to standard cost of business increases or decreases, which are experienced in doing business and equally apply to all customers.) Once a Company’s specific utility requirements are known, specific and applicable rate quotes will be provided. Utilities including water, sewer, gas and electric power will be made available in capacities required by the prospect company.
The Jenkins County Development Authority assists companies in securing Quick Start training prior to a company beginning operation. Quick Start is the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education's statewide training arm for new and expanding industries in Georgia. Developed as an incentive for companies to locate in Georgia, Quick Start provides job specific training for Georgians to enter the workforce in the state's new and expanding industries. This free State of Georgia-sponsored training is provided locally through Southeastern Technical College.
Job Tax Credit
Provides tax credits on Georgia income taxes for qualifying businesses that create and retain five (5) or more jobs. Per each new job created, a tax credit of $4,000 will be credited to the business for a period of five years, beginning from year two (2) through year six (6) with ability to carry forward for 10 years. The Development Authority further pledges to work with State agencies and officials to ensure the prospect receives the proper credits as this program may be amended in the future.
