States Make Progress Evaluating Tax Incentives
Note: This document was updated in May 2016 to add Alabama and Virginia.
Economic development tax incentives play a central role in states’ efforts to create jobs and strengthen their economies. To ensure that these programs are achieving their goals, many states have approved laws requiring regular, rigorous, independent evaluations of tax incentives. The Pew Charitable Trusts has worked with states across the country to design and implement these laws. With improved information, policymakers can shape policies that obtain better results for states’ budgets, businesses, and workers.
