What is a tax abatement?

A tax abatement is an agreement between a business and a taxing entity, such as a state, county, or local government, which provides a temporary tax reduction for a business that expands or makes physical improvements.

Businesses are sometimes offered tax abatements as a way to encourage expansion and investment.
