  • Free workforce development created in collaboration with Georgia's highly-respected QuickStart, one of the nation's leading workforce development organizations.
  • Tier 1 and Tier 2 tax credits: A location in Brooks County allows your operation to leverage the best of Georgia's Tiered tax incentives, thanks to a county-wide Tier 2 designation and an Opportunity Zone Tier 1 designation for the Brooks County Industrial Park. That translates into valuable assistance of up to $4,000 in corporate tax credits per job created.
  • A full range of tax exemptions, including sales tax and use tax exemptions that can amount to five to eight % on purchases, and inventory tax exemptions such as a 100% Freeport exemption that allows for the utmost cost efficiency in the flow of both raw materials and finished goods.
  • Port Tax Credit Bonus: For Georgia companies, importing or exporting through Georgia ports can also open the option of additional jobs tax credit or an adjustment in investment tax credit.
