Business incentives in Georgia drive business growth. Our portfolio begins with a tax credit to spur job creation and includes an array of other credits for investing in R&D, shipping through ports and making key expansion investments. Georgia tax exemptions are just as robust: they can save you lots of money in startup and operating costs. All of this is anchored by a 5.75% corporate tax rate based on single-factor apportionment.
Nine out of 10 Fortune 500 companies have operations in Georgia – and 18 of these have made Georgia their world headquarters. Why they’re here – and why they stay – stems from both favorable business conditions and the many ways in which Georgia works to help companies grow.
Business in Georgia begins with fiscal responsibility. Low taxes: Georgia has a low 5.75% corporate tax rate effective January 2019. Before then, it was 6% – for half a century. Georgia also has single factor apportionment, with in-state sales being the only factor determining your state income tax liability.
