Tax Benefits

Everyone can use a break. You'll find that many of the sites - and even some brand-new buildings - in CAN DO's parks have been designated Keystone Opportunity Zones (KOZs). This means selected sites and buildings have been taken off the local, county and state tax rolls- in many cases through 2017 and some 2019! This can save some companies millions of dollars a year.
