Winston-Salem, Forsyth County sets itself apart in how area businesses, government agencies, organizations, and community leaders work together to develop incentive programs. The result is an approach to incentives that makes sense for businesses and the community.

Local Tax Credits and Incentives

Both Forsyth County and Winston-Salem have written guidelines for economic development incentives. Local incentive support is based on net new capital investment and job creation. Each project is reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but history has shown that our community is aggressive in pursuing the right deals. Greater Winston-Salem, Inc. coordinates all local incentive requests with City and County staff prior to taking the request to the public bodies.
