PILOT or TAXATION

GET INVOLVED :

PILOT
Payment In Lieu Of Taxes (PILOT)

PILOT Agreements are normally negotiated in an effort to entice a new business to become established in your town, usually as an incentive for generating many new jobs for residents of your area or for provided a needed service.
