Economic Development

The City of Jasper is a great place to do business and is very interested in the future of your business. Your business's future growth is a direct benefit to the economic development of the Jasper community and it is vital that we work together toward that goal. We have comprised a list of considerations as you begin your business venture.


Business Incentives

The City of Jasper offers a tax phase-in (abatement) program for qualifying businesses. Property tax abatement in Indiana is authorized under Indiana Code 6-1.1-12.1-1 et. Seq. in the form of deductions from assessed valuation. Property owners in a locally-designated Economic Revitalization Area (ERA) who make improvements to real property or installs eligible new or used personal property may qualify for tax abatement. For a complete overview of the Tax Phase-In Program, please visit the Tax Phase-In page.

Zoning Regulations

Before selecting a property for your business, discuss your site with our Department of Community Development & Planning to see if your intended use is permitted - keep in mind, parking and sign restrictions and zoning history. Various permits may apply.



The Jasper Municipal Utilities, under control of the Utility Service Board, provides Electric, Water, Natural Gas, and Waste Water services to business in the City of Jasper and, in some cases, the surrounding area.
