Metro Denver Incentives
Low taxes, a fair and accessible regulatory environment, and low business costs foster Metro Denver’s favorable business climate. The state of Colorado and local governments in Metro Denver and Northern Colorado improve this climate by providing incentives that focus on:
- Job creation
- Employee training
- Tax rebates
- Expedited permitting and licensing
- Infrastructure improvements
Most of the incentives are granted on a case-by-case basis depending on the type of company, the number of employees, wages, and location of the project.
The state of Colorado provides performance-based incentive payments to qualifying companies that have created net new jobs that pay above average wages and also offers customized training grants.
Local governments offer sales and use tax rebates, personal property tax rebates, and expedited permitting and licensing programs as incentives. Some local governments also administer Enterprise Zones, providing incentives to businesses that expand or locate in designated economically distressed areas of the state.
Each local government’s incentives programs are based on the policies of the individual local jurisdiction. For questions or assistance with incentives, contact the Metro Denver EDC.
