• Benefits for Businesses in the GR KIZ

    • Tax Credits - after a company's third year in the KIZ program, the company can apply for Pennsylvania tax credits equivalent to half of the revenue growth from the previous two years, up to a limit of $100,000. A company is eligible for credits each year (after the third), as long as it meets the KIZ company eligibility requirements and continues to show revenue growth.
