Morehouse Parish businesses have benefited from the comparatively low local and state tax rates. More often than not, the taxes impacting business are eliminated or reduced by local and state incentive programs. And the new Louisiana FastStart Training Program is ranked in the nation’s top workforce training programs for company-specific recruiting and training.
Morehouse Parish is currently eligible for Enterprise Zone and other programs offered by the State of Louisiana. Please visit the Louisiana Economic Development Website or contact us to see if your business may qualify for incentive programs. Local job credit programs may be available to assist with building and infrastructure development.
