Georgia has been voted the No.1 State for Business by Site Selection magazine 5 years in a row. This reflects into Georgia being the first Southeastern state to pass single-factor corporate tax appointment, meaning that in-state sales are the only relevant factor in determining the portion of taxable income to which the 6 percent corporate tax is applied. The Georgia Department of Economic Development has industry experts whose sole responsibility is to help the business expand within the state. GDEcD offers top-ranked workforce development for businesses, with programs like internationally-acclaimed Quick Start and public-private partnerships among the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), the University System of Georgia and private employers. This unique and proactive environment gives businesses a competitive advantage when it comes to learning about workforce challenges and the needs they will have over the next 5 to 10 years.
