The City of Fresno was originally granted an Enterprise Zone designation in October 1986. This zone expired on October 14, 2006. The City of Fresno received a brand new Enterprise Zone designation effective October 15, 2006 through October 14, 2021.
Businesses in the zone - from large manufacturing companies to small neighborhood restaurants - can significantly reduce their state income taxes by taking advantage of special California Enterprise Zone tax benefits.
Located within the Fresno Enterprise Zone borders are affordable manufacturing and commercial sites, as well as unique retail locations. The zone is within immediate access of two freeways, two state highways, the Fresno Yosemite International Airport and the Downtown Chandler Airport. It is also in close proximity to a wide range of educational facilities, housing and other amenities. These assets add up to an increasingly powerful ability to assist current businesses and attract new companies, jobs and investments.
A business located within the Enterprise Zone can receive tax credits each time it hires an eligible employee or purchases qualified new machinery, equipment or pollution control devices. Incentives are also available to many employees who work in the zone and lenders who make loans to qualified businesses. Most businesses in the Enterprise Zone are automatically eligible for benefits. There is no certification process.
