The Luling Economic Development Corporation operates on funding secured by a one-half cent sales tax. Qualifications for assistance are based on the Corporation's fund availability from year to year.
The Luling EDC offers assistance to businesses that would like to expand their existing operations or want to relocate or expand their out-of-state or out-of-country operations into the City of Luling.
Businesses that seek to expand within or relocate to the Luling Business and Industrial Park may qualify for a reduced purchase price on their property, or even "free land." This program is predicated on the amount of capital investment made and the number of primary jobs created.
A project may also qualify for a Texas Department of Agriculture Capital Fund grant for up to $750,000 of infrastructure improvements. The City of Luling could apply for this grant on behalf of the project. For businesses expanding or relocating to Texas, the State of Texas offers incentives and financing, including the Texas Enterprise Fund and various tax incentives.
In addition, the City of Luling may provide tax abatements on value added to the real property or new business personal property to encourage your business investment and/or expansion in the city, subject to city council approval.
Texas is a right to work state with no personal income tax and no corporate income tax.
