Overview
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 new Enterprise Zone designation effective October 15, 2006 and was scheduled to expire in 2021.  Unfortunately, legislation passed in June, 2013 eliminated the Enterprise Zone program, effective January 1, 2014.

Businesses in the zone - from large manufacturing companies to small neighborhood restaurants - were able to significantly reduce their state income taxes by taking advantage of special California Enterprise Zone tax benefits.
