Enterprise Zones

Oregon's Enterprise Zones exempt businesses from local property taxes on new investments. Sponsored by city, port, county, or tribal governments, an enterprise zone typically serves as a focal point for local development efforts. There are currently 74 enterprise zones creating better opportunities for business investment across Oregon: 57 rural and 17 urban. Local governments are responsible for creating, amending, managing, and renewing most of these zones until June 30, 2025.

For more information, please contact our Business Incentives Coordinator.
