Many C-Level executives and small business owners have heard of the Gulf Opportunity Zone (the GO Zone Act) and know that it does something for Louisiana businesses, but they do not know if or how the new law can help them and their employees. Kean Miller has prepared a comprehensive summary of the GO Zone Act and its sister law, the Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act of 2005 (“KETRA”). This summary describes the key legislative provisions and explains how Louisiana-area businesses, both large and small, can maximize the GO Zone benefits available to them. In a nutshell, the new GO Zone legislation is the best business investment incentive program that the Gulf Coast has seen in recent memory, perhaps ever. Businesses that are considering expanding their Louisiana operations or relocating to an incentive-rich area should consider speeding up their plans quickly to take advantage of the GO Zone incentives before they expire.
