Womble Carlyle’s Economic Development Digest aggregates news, opportunities and legislation impacting business in the United States.

In this week's Economic Development Digest:

  • Tax foundation publishes summary of 2014 state, local tax rates, (March 1, 2014)**
    The Tax Foundation published a report summarizing state and average local sales tax rates for 2014, reporting that Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Washington, and Oklahoma have the highest average combined rates, and noting that comparing state sales taxes is difficult because states apply different rates to different bases and sales taxes should be considered in context of a state's overall tax structure.

South Carolina
  • Virginia allows property tax exemption for solar energy equipment, facilities, (March 17, 2014)**
    Virginia SB 418, signed into law as Chapter 259, includes business-owned or business-operated solar energy equipment, facilities, and devices that collect, generate, transfer, or store thermal or electrical energy in a class of pollution control equipment exempted from real and personal property tax.
