What is the Incentive Evaluator?
The incentive evaluator is an interactive tool that allows businesses to quickly and efficiently discover which Louisiana incentives their business may be eligible for and their potential tax benefit from those incentives. You are in the right place if you are trying to find out the following questions:
Am I eligible for any incentives offered in Louisiana?
What is my potential tax benefit?
What are my next steps to receive these incentives?
This tool is designed to have you answer the least amount of questions possible to determine your program eligibility. It should not take longer than 15 minutes to get through the eligibility questionnaire. Your first step is to decide whether you want to be asked questions about all of Louisiana's incentives, or if you only want to be asked questions about a particular incentive. Choose the first option if you are unfamiliar with the incentives Louisiana has to offer, and choose the second option if you are seeking out a specific incentive. If you are determined potentially eligible for one or more incentive programs, you will then have the option to calculate your estimated tax benefit for those incentives. Keep in mind that your eligibility and tax benefit calculations are only estimates created by this tool for your convenience. However, there are instructions provided in each program's details section that will advise you as to which steps to take to apply for that incentive.
