Tax Credit Zones & Districts

Colorado’s Urban and Rural Enterprise Zone Act of 1986 established a program for the designation of state enterprise zones. The enterprise zone program provides various incentives for private enterprise to expand and for new businesses to locate in economically distressed areas of the state. The Economic Development Commission (EDC) designates certain economically distressed areas of the state as Enterprise Zones. There are currently 16 local Enterprise Zones in Colorado. Businesses located in a zone may qualify for 10 different Enterprise Zone Tax Credits and Incentives to encourage job creation and investment in these zones.
