ICS specializes in the two most critical components of the entire process...








Whether you are a large corporation or a small business,

ICS can help you receive all eligible state and local incentives

by guiding you through the final stages of the process.


The Incentive Compliance Process

can be lengthy and confusing,
which is why roughly 50% of economic incentives
are left uncollected and unused.

Your company may not be receiving
the full value of the state and local incentives you have been granted,
or your process may have stalled at the Final Approval Stage,
so the incentives are never Activated or Redeemed.

Where are you in the process?


Your Company has already taken care of
the Following Stages of the process:

New Project Application | Qualification & Negotiation | Pre-Approval  
Identifying Eligible Costs
| Local Jurisdiction Participation

and your company has been approved for an incentive amount,
but has not yet redeemed those incentives.

We handle the following stages of the process:



Final Approval

Your company has reached the minimum requirements and is now eligible to activate the full terms of your state's Tax Incentive Agreement.


Activate incentives

Your company fills out and submits the additional necessary paperwork to Activate the recovery period, which should happen no later than two years from the date of Final Approval.

Remember... ICS can help determine the most profitable time to Activate and can handle the Activation process!


Redeem incentives

Either monthly or quarterly, your company reviews your payroll records, calculates the amount of incentives earned, and Redeems the incentives in the form of Tax Credits.

ICS can save your company time and money by utilizing an automated compliance process as well as compliance software to maximize your tax credits and ensure you are always in compliance with the stipulations of your project's Tax Incentive Agreement.


Monthly, Quarterly, & Annual Reporting

Monthly, quarterly, or annually, your company submits the additional appropriate paperwork to demonstrate your compliance with your state's Tax Incentive Agreement. 

Because of our knowledge and years of experience, ICS can save you money and time by taking the burden of reporting off your tax and accounting departments.

Just like the monthly and quarterly reports, our software is designed to ensure your company submits a fully compliant Annual Report...and we ensure audit readiness.
