Business Incentives

E-Commerce Zone

The City of North Plains offers an Electronic Commerce (E-Commerce) Zone Program to qualifiying businesses within the E-zone boundary, which provides additional tax incentives for companies who conduct business primarily through electronic channels.

State Incentive – Strategic Investment Program

The Strategic Investment Program (SIP) exempts a portion of large capital investments from property taxes. The program is available statewide for projects developed by “traded-sector” businesses, most often used for manufacturing firms. “Traded sector” is defined in Oregon law as “industries in which member firms sell their goods or services into markets for which national or international competition exists.”

Depending on the investment size, the Strategic Investment Program can offer exceptional benefits in terms of net present value.
