Noblesville Local Incentives

Tax Abatements

A tax abatement is a reduction or exemption of real estate property taxes for an allotted period of time. A tax abatement can be granted from several months up to 10 years. Abatements are often used as a tool to revitalize or stimulate economic growth within certain property boundaries. For additional information regarding tax abatements, please reference IC 6‐1.1‐12.1.


TIF or Tax Increment Financing is a tool used to stimulate growth and economic development in a specific area. TIF takes newly assessed property taxes from a new development to finance and incentivize new development/ redevelopment projects in the same area. For more information on TIF, please reference IC 36-7-14, IC 36-7-25, IC 36-7-11.9, and IC 36-7-12.

Land Grants

The City has the ability to offer city-owned property as a grant for projects.

Workforce Grants

Workforce grants are made available on a discretionary basis. Factors that drive decisions on workforce grants include but are not limited to: targeted industry, occupation skills, wages, and more.

Forgivable Loans

The City can provide an up-front cash loan, which is then forgivable after a period of time and once certain project and performance commitments have been met.

Indiana Regional Incentives

Certain businesses may also qualify for additional incentives, including the following: Foreign Trade Zone Companies that import or re-export can realize substantial time and financial savings via the Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), a federal program designed to support American business and job growth.

In just a 30-minute conversation with your CFO or CEO, an FTZ consultant is able to gather the data required to produce a feasibility study/cost-benefit analysis, and it is free to you. INzone ( or 317-487-7200), Central Indiana’s FTZ Grantee Administrator, pays for the study and helps connect you to qualified consultants.

In an FTZ, your company could experience these benefits:

  • Duty Savings – Imports may be admitted and held in an FTZ without paying U.S. Customs duties.
  • Flexibility – All merchandise, whether domestic or foreign, may be placed in an FTZ. Within an FTZ users can mix, manipulate, test, clean, sample, salvage, process, display, repair, destroy, assemble, and manufacture merchandise and goods.
  • Zone-to-Zone Transfer – Items can be transferred between zones without being subjected to taxes.
  • Duty Rate Choice – FTZ users can pay the duty rate applicable to either the raw materials or the finished products manufactured from the raw materials, depending upon which is lower.
  • Shelf-Life – Items can be stored indefinitely in an FTZ, unlike a bonded warehouse.
  • Labeling – No country-of-origin labels are required on merchandise admitted to the FTZ.
  • Quota / Supply Chain Efficiency – Zone users can bring in bulk shipments and store quota goods in an FTZ until the next quota period allows for importation and distribution into the U.S.
