Cost of Doing Business

Tax exemptions, fee waivers and property tax abatements are some of the incentives that make the cost of doing business in Polk County low. Another factor is that Polk County does not impose an excise tax on energy used by manufacturers, which makes Polk County more competitive than many surrounding counties. Additionally, a wage rate lower than the U.S. average keeps business costs in check.

Polk County continually strives to improve their business-friendly environment.
