Business Incentive Programs

Missouri offers a number of state tax credits, state tax exemptions, grants and financing programs.

Missouri Works Hide

One of Missouri’s signature programs to help create jobs and investment in Missouri, the Missouri Works program, offers achievable, flexible, and competitive benefits to companies investing in Missouri. The retention of the state withholding tax on the new jobs and/or state tax credits, which are refundable, transferable and/or saleable make this a powerful business attraction program for businesses that qualify. The program offers multiple categories with different minimum thresholds to fit the needs of almost any business considering Missouri. Learn more

In Their Words

We train displaced workers in rural Missouri for today's IT jobs to keep those jobs in the country. Missouri incentives got us started. The work ethic of our employees keeps us going.

— Shane Mayes / Onshore Outsourcing

We would find it difficult to replace the work force, many of whom are very technically skilled people. Missouri is good for Leggett & Platt, because of people, resources, economic incentives, and low tax burden.

— Dave Haffner / Leggett & Platt

The work ethic here is really good. People come in and work hard. They’re used to working hard before we hire them.

— Jack Prim / Jack Henry & Associates

I've lived in a lot of places, and there is a difference here in how people conduct themselves. There is a strong work ethic and friendliness that I haven't found elsewhere.
