Innovative Economic Development Incentive Hub Webinar
This webinar is complimentary for OEDA members but registration is required.
January 26, 2022 from 9 - 10 a.m.
Economic developers and policy makers are challenged every day with ensuring sufficient transparency and accountability on tax incentives. Greater transparency is a prerequisite for community and elected official support for tax incentives.
Join us on Wednesday, January 26, 9 to 10:00am to learn about an innovative program that uses cutting edge GIS technologies to show comprehensive details on every tax incentive in use in the county.
The Tax Incentives Hub was developed by Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano as a way of ensuring that Franklin County taxpayers have information about tax incentives offered by all of the jurisdictions in Franklin County.
The Tax Incentives Hub, which is available on the Auditor’s office website, features maps that show where incentives are in use, the different types of incentives, data about the incentives, and the local ordinance that created each. The maps can break down the tax incentives by municipality, so residents can see which are in use in their neighborhood.
The Hub also lists the effects each incentive has on government agencies that depend on tax revenue, and it links to specific information about each incentive at the individual municipality’s economic development website. A downloadable spreadsheet listing information on all incentives is also available on the Hub.
Registration is required.
