Competitive Business Costs

Cost is a major consideration when a company chooses a state. In 2018, Arkansas was cited by CNBC as having one of the nation's lowest overall cost of doing business. CNBC looked at the tax burden, including individual income and property taxes as well as business taxes, utility costs, wages, and rental costs for office and industrial space. This gives Northwest Arkansas a competitive edge in the world market. The following links go to sites that provide business tax and incentive information.
