Incentives structured around your success

Our local and state governments are more than business-friendly. Because we recognize the importance of healthy, growing businesses to our economy, we see companies as our partners in serving the community. That’s why Noblesville and the State of Indiana have decided to offer an array of incentives and grants to companies that choose to locate or grow here. We recognize that our community already offers many advantages to business, from our highly-accessible location, to our skilled workforce, to a vibrant lifestyle — but we see these programs that help companies thrive as one more great reason to choose Noblesville, Indiana.


We use tax phase-ins to exempt portions of the new or increased assessed value resulting from a company’s investment in real and personal property. Phase-ins range from 1 to 10 years, with the total amount of new assessed value exempt from paying property tax in Year 1.
