Tax Incentives in the Cincinnati Region

Our 3-state, 16-county area offers unique tax and incentives for companies looking to expand or locate in the region. Our connected region creates an ecosystem of collaboration and choice among development organizations not often found in single-state areas.

  • Job Creation Tax Credit
  • Property Tax Credit

The Cincinnati region is in an “ideal economic situation” thanks to competitive state income tax rates, which hover around five percent, compared to nine percent in places like Connecticut.
