Tax credits to Massachusetts businesses to promote job creation and spur economic development. Applicants must contact program staff and submit an LOI and a preliminary application prior to applying. Funding is intended to help businesses grow by offering credits to lower taxes in exchange for job creation.

A company that participates in EDIP may receive state tax credits and/or local property tax incentives in exchange for a commitment to new job creation, existing job retention, and private investment in the project. The main criteria that will be considered for funding are whether a project is unlikely to move forward without state and local government support.

If you own a company and are looking to grow your enterprise, contact a MOBD Regional Director to discuss your project. These directors can help with the required state and municipal processes to apply for EDIP. It is recommended that you involve a regional director early in the process as they can help to pre-qualify a project, determine whether EDIP tax credits or a different program may be more appropriate, improve your application, and set realistic expectations. Regional directors also know program deadlines and nuances, eligibility requirements, and a city or town’s historic use of EDIP.

If you are working with a municipality to execute a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Agreement or Special Tax Assessment (STA), and are not applying for the EDIP Credit, you must submit a Local Incentive Only Application to the EACC by the posted deadline for consideration at the corresponding meeting date.
