Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tax Phase-In (often referred to as Tax Abatement)?

Tax Phase-In allows for the gradual phasing in of new real and personal property tax that has occurred due to an increase in assessed value of a building and/or the purchase of equipment. In a Tax Phase-In, any incremental tax (above current tax base) owed due to construction of or improvements made to the building and/or purchase of certain equipment occur in graduated steps. Full taxes on these improvements would commence after the allotted time.

Will my company/project qualify for tax incentives?

The Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville is contracted by the City of Evansville and Vanderburgh County to administer the Tax Phase-In process for new and expanding businesses. This is a temporary reduction of taxes (real and/or personal property) over a period of time to encourage economic development. The abatement period is objectively determined by a point system, which is influenced by the factors below. Company representatives interested in applying for tax phase-in are encouraged to contact the Growth Alliance to discuss their project and determine eligibility at no cost.
