Incentives


Phoenix is always working towards promoting a business-friendly environment. The following programs are available to companies looking to expand or locate to Phoenix.


​City of Phoenix Programs

New Markets Tax Credit Program (NMTC Program)
The New Markets Tax Credit Program (NMTC Program) was established by the Phoenix Community Development and Investment Corporation to spur investments into operating businesses and real estate projects located in low-income communities.

Self-Certification Program
The City of Phoenix is a leader in streamlined plan review and permitting programs. Our Self-Certification Program eliminates traditional plan review by allowing a registered professional to certify a project's compliance with building codes, standards and ordinances. Over 200 projects have successfully utilized the program. Please visit https://www.phoenix.gov/pdd/self-certification-program


Government Property Lease Excise Tax (GPLET)
GPLET is a state statute which allows a private party to construct new improvements on a parcel, transfer free title of the land and improvements for government agencies to hold, and then have it leased back to them. Government ownership of the land results in the parcel not being charged an Ad Valorem Property tax but instead, taxed an Excise Tax.  In most cases, this creates a savings for a development/redevelopment project.





Phoenix Industrial Development Authority

The Phoenix IDA is focused on providing bond financing for community and economic development projects. Since 2009, the Phoenix IDA has issued more than $1 billion in bonds. Their goals include increasing job opportunities within the community, supporting education and health care, and providing housing for underserved communities.

Permit by Inspector
The PBI Program was created for minor commercial interior remodels and tenant improvements which allows customers to obtain plan review and permit approval at the job site. Inspection staff will review plans on site and determine when to begin construction. Please visit https://www.phoenix.gov/pdd/topics/permit-by-inspector-program
