Alabama Jobs Credit

Qualifying projects may be eligible for an annual cash rebate of up to 3% of the previous year's gross payroll (not including fringe benefits) for new, direct jobs. The incentive period is 10 years.

  • For companies employing at least 12% veterans in their eligible workforce, up to an additional 0.5% job credit is available for the wages of veterans.

  • Amounts are paid as refunds of taxes for utility services.

  • There is no job minimum for chemical manufacturing, data centers, metal/machining, engineering, design, and research projects. All other projects must create 50 jobs.

  • This is a discretionary incentive. The availability of this incentive is based on the results of an economic impact analysis performed for each project.
