State & Local Tax Credits and Incentives

National perspective. Local insight.

Capitalize on opportunities when expanding, relocating, or consolidating operations

State and local governments provide a wide range of tax credits and other financial incentives to encourage investment and job creation.

Claiming and negotiating these credits and incentives can offer significant opportunities for U.S. companies as well as for multinationals establishing a U.S. foothold. Because they vary significantly from one jurisdiction to the next, planning and analysis is critical. Additionally, conducting strategic reviews can identify overlooked or underused tax credits. 

BDO can help businesses lower costs and increase return on investment. We leverage our strong relationships with state and local economic development agencies to negotiate the best possible tax credits and incentives for our clients. 

Our principal-led team includes experienced state and local tax advisors and knowledgeable industry professionals in offices across the U.S. who are adept at helping clients select optimal locations that align with their unique business objectives. We help clients understand the complexities of tax liabilities, compliance obligations, and overlooked opportunities so they can get the most out of state and local tax credits and incentives.
