10-year Tax Study Ranks North Dakota #1

A recent independent analysis proved North Dakota has lower business taxes for food processing- and manufacturing-related industries than 10 other states. Eide Bailly, an accounting and consulting firm with offices in eight states, conducted the analysis as if it were research for a new facility.  The firm evaluated the 10-year tax costs to include land and building costs, an expansion, equipment costs, and employment and sales growth.

Research was conducted for all applicable tax scenarios, including incentives, for five tax areas:

       Property taxes

       State and local sales tax

      Corporate income tax

       Workers compensation insurance

       Unemployment insurance

North Dakotas strategically developed tax incentives resulted in the lowest tax state ranking.  Our state has worked diligently to provide incentives to assist new and expanding businesses in the critical first five to ten years to get you to profitability faster.
