HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) at Southeastern Louisiana
University will offer a seminar on incentives for Louisiana businesses on Wednesday,
April 10, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Co-sponsored by the Livingston Economic Development Council, the free seminar will be held at the Livingston Parish Library, located at 8101 U.S. Hwy 190 in Denham Springs.
Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Southeastern SBDC, said tax incentive programs are offered in Louisiana for new and existing companies that are expanding and creating job opportunities. The incentives are typically in the form of sales and use tax rebates, tax credits, and tax exemptions.
"This event will provide a detailed overview that will include program rules and application processes for Enterprise Zone, Industrial Tax Exemption, Restoration Abatement, Small Business Loan Guaranty, Quality Jobs, Modernization Tax Program, EDAP Program/Training Grants and Performance Based Grants," she said. "The class is open to small business owners, certified public accountants, bankers and potential business owners interested in learning how to take advantage of the state's financial incentives provided through the state."
There is no cost to attend the event; however, pre-registration is preferred, as seating is limited. For more information, contact LSBDC Southeastern at 985-549-3831 or call 225-664-6638. Online registration is available at www.lsbdc.org.
