Bowie… Our Commitment to Your Business Growth.
In 1998, the residents of Bowie approved a one-half of one percent sales tax dedicated to promoting economic development in the City of Bowie. These funds must be expended in accordance with State Law to facilitate eligible projects. The responsibility of the Bowie Economic Development Corporation is to reinvest the funds in Bowie, to expand the city property tax base and create quality (primary) job opportunities.
Interested companies are required to complete an incentive proposal which requires a business plan and/or model, financial statements for three-years and a third-party economic impact study to determine the projected economic impact the business will have on the City of Bowie.
