LOCAL ZONING ORDINANCES

Zoning ordinances are established by the local government to control the development of land areas and specify the neighborhoods for commercial, residential, industrial use.

It is important to check and ensure that the area of your establishment conforms to the zoning requirements set by the local government. The business operation can be restricted or banned entirely if this is not adhered to.

Make sure to check with the department of city planning or a similar agency to verify zoning laws that apply to your business location.

STATE AND LOCAL TAXES

Some states offer tax incentives. Some local government offices provide an inducement to small businesses in the form of a special tax credit, state-specific loans for small businesses, and other forms of financial reward.

These benefits and program incentives are often associated with urban redevelopment, job creation, energy efficiency, and technology.

To find more about these programs and related information, make sure to check State and Local Government websites.
