Waller County considers extending incentives on a case-by-case basis for qualifying businesses. Each prospect interested in receiving incentives must complete an economic impact analysis. This analysis is free and will help determine if a company qualifies.
In no particular order, the primary things that we consider include:
- Will the company help diversify our economy?
- Does the company provide market or above market wages?
- Is there a negative environmental impact?
- What is the risk associated with the company's industry?
- Will the company help achieve development goals?
To be successful, the company must provide an overall positive economic impact. If the analysis shows a good impact and return to the county, then we can start the first round of discussions to see what may be most fitting. If things are agreeable, the company is encouraged to submit an application for incentives. There is a $1000.00 application fee that must be paid at the time the application is submitted to the county. VERY IMPORTANT: If you think you may qualify for incentives, do not start construction before applying.
In general, Waller County prefers to use property tax abatements, for qualifying companies, as the primary incentive to assist existing and new companies. If you qualify and have submitted the application, the final step is to get approval from Waller County Commissioners' Court. They are the final authority for approving incentives.
