When it comes to great economic incentives, you can’t beat us, so you might as well join us.
Punta Gorda is willing to cut your city tax bill in half for two years if you agree to have your commercial property annexed into the city. All you have to do is purchase a commercial property outside the city limits that is eligible for annexation and agree to become part of the city. Talk about a win-win! You benefit from receiving all city services (including fire and police protection) and you get a serious break on property taxes for two years. The city gets to grow and welcome a new member to our business community. And while the tax breaks last two years, the 15 percent drop in your utility costs that kicks in when you become part of the city is permanent!
