Upson County is a Tier 1 County, which provides a $4,000 job tax credit for each new job created. We have a union–free workforce and offer Freeport Exemptions for Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3 commercial and industrial inventory.
The TUCIDA has issued over $276 million in revenue bonds for our industries. Our community offers some of the most aggressive local incentives available in Georgia for businesses that create new jobs and investments. The TUCIDA, in cooperation with the Upson County Board of Tax Assessors, may develop a revised tax schedule for new real and personal property for qualifying projects.
The TUCIDA realizes that industries do not live by a “one size fits all” rule, and we will assess the overall economic impact of each project to determine additional incentives. Such incentives may range from requests for state grant assistance, discounted site costs for publicly owned industrial sites, and other areas of consideration identified by prospects during the site selection process.
The IDA (in cooperation with the City of Thomaston, Upson County, local school system and Tax Assessor’s office) offers the abatement of city, county and school taxes.
