How can I...


Victoria County works in partnership with local municipalities and other taxing authorities to offer tax abatements as part of an overall publicly supported incentive program.  The program is designed to create job opportunities that bring new economic advantages or strengthen the current economic base of our community.  As prescribed in Chapter 312 of the Texas Tax Code, the Victoria County Commissioners Court considers each request for tax abatement on a case by case basis, in accordance with the County’s  Tax Abatement Guidelines and Criteria.  The offer of incentives is tied to an analysis of the economic impact of the project on the community, including the amount of investment in real and personal property; the number, types and salaries of new and retained jobs; the provision of health and other benefits by the company; and other project specific factors.
