Business Incentives & Support

The Town of Langenburg prides itself on being a business and family friendly town and creating an attractive community through tax incentives and other significant support for local & new businesses and families. 

TAX INCENTIVES:
  • 0 business tax;
  • The town has one of the lowest municipal property tax gaps (1.22) in the Central East Region. That means, on average, commercial property owners pay 1.22 times what residential owners pay in municipal property taxes. Commercial property owners pay only 1/2 the millrate (3.0 mills) as residential and it is applied to any existing and new business within our community. Levy calculation example.
