|Mobile Economic Summit to travel through region Jan. 14-18, 2008|
A Mobile Economic Summit is scheduled to travel through Northern and Central rural Louisiana for five days beginning January 14 and ending January 18 to promote Federal Tax Incentives available to businesses located in a designated Federal Renewal Community was announced today by Tana Trichel, President and CEO of Northeast Louisiana Economic Alliance (NELEA) and Statewide Chairperson of the Tax Incentive to Cash Incentive Campaign.
The mobile summit, conducted at each location in the Louisiana Business and Technology Center's (LBTC) mobile classroom, highlights tax incentives designed to hire local people, upgrade equipment, improve structures, and maximize profits.
The goals of the summit are to make those businesses aware of the millions of dollars in cash incentives available through this program region wide and how to engage the businesses in taking advantage of the incentives.
According to Dun and Bradstreet these 25 parishes in the designated Northern and Central Renewal Communities have an estimation of 16,000 employees. If just half that number of employees (8,000) is claimed by the businesses for just one of the available four credits, then they would bring up to $1,500 per each employee or about $12 million a year in tax credits to their employers.
Each day, two one-hour presentations (morning and afternoon) will be conducted by Trichel and Don Mains, Louisiana Tax Incentive Chairman.In the crowd will be business owners who have successfully used the cash incentives to help enhance their growth. Listed below are the dates, times and locations.
Seating is limited. To reserve a space or for further information, you are asked to contact Michelle Boothe in the NELEA office in Ferriday at 1-800-686-6733 (toll free) or 318-757-3033, ext. 16.
There is no cost to attend any of the presentations. Business owners located in the presentation cities and from surrounding parishes not yet using the incentives are especially encouraged to be present to find out their potential financial impact.
