Additional Considerations

EZ Employment Act of 1997

The EZ Employment Act of 1997, as amended empowers the local governing body to make a case by case determination of the eligibility of each business for EZ tax abatements and other incentives. Among the considerations may be the following:
  • Locating in a vacant building
  • Demolishing a pre-existing or abandoned structure
  • Assembling four or more tracts of land for one project
  • Creating jobs above the state threshold
  • Creating jobs for residents of the EZ and surrounding area
  • Incorporating aesthetic enhancements (i.e.: landscaping, type of façade materials used, exclusion of billboards)
