RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider adoption of a resolution approving Nueces County Guidelines and Criteria for Granting Tax Abatements.
BACKGROUND

The Commissioners Court last adopted Guidelines and Criteria for Granting Temporary Property Tax Abatements in January 2010.  Under the Chapter 312 of the Texas Tax Code such Guidelines and Critera remain in effect for only two years.

DISCUSSION
The Guidelines and Criteria for Granting Temporary Property Tax Abatements have expired and, as such, new Guidelines and Criteria are being proposed which include a change from the previous Guidelines and Criteria.  Specifically, the proposed gudelines add a new provision for a Basic Manufacturing or Service Facility which provides at least $750 million in new capital imvestment, and at least 200 net new full time jobs.  Companies meeting this criteria will receive 100% abatement for up to three (3) years of construction, and 70% abatement for an additional seven (7) years of operations. 

The primary change is for providing $750 million in new capital imvestment and at least 200 net new full time jobs the company will receive an additonal two (2) years abatement at 70%.  The number of full time jobs must meet or exceed 200 for all seven (7) years of operating abatement at 70%

Attached are a black-lined draft and final draft of the proposed Guidelines and Critera.
