Cost of Doing Business

Run lean, smart and fiscally fit.

High-value incentives, low taxes: In Cook County, your operation can run lean and smart without trying to outrun the tax man thanks to a wealth of valuable financial incentives, including Georgia’s Top Tier 1 Jobs Credit of $4,000 per qualified job against corporate tax liability and payroll withholding.

 

And here in Georgia, there’s even more good news on the tax front:

 

Low-cost utilities: With municipally sourced (and in some cases customer choice) utilities, operational expenses are significantly lower, while productivity remains high.

 

Labor that yields greater competitive value: Cook County’s right-to-work, ready-to-work labor force keeps quality high, costs low.

 

Attractive cost of living: While Georgia’s cost of living is 91.5% of the U.S. average, Cook County’s costs are even more inviting, at.81.7% of the national average. What’s more, fine quality, affordable housing and a host of lifestyle amenities and options mean individuals and families can live a deeply satisfying life without reaching deep in their pockets. Cook County’s superb public schools, for example, keep the ration of public versus private school attendance higher than the state average. A sprawling paradise of a state park and a municipal golf course insure recreation that is highly pleasurable without high prices. Plus, Cook County’s convenient hub location also puts some of the nation’s top vacation spots—Disney World and Atlantic and Gulf beaches, for example—within just a few hours’ drive.

 

In Cook County, you’ll work efficiently, live well and spend wisely.
