Economic Well-being

As part of the Article 3J Act, every year the Department of Commerce ranks each county based on economic well-being and assigns it to one of three tiers. The rankings reflect the counties’ relative economic status based on four factors: 12-month unemployment rate, median household income, 36-month population growth rate, and per capita adjusted assessed property value. The 40 most distressed counties are designated as Tier 1, the next 40 are Tier 2, and the 20 least distressed are Tier 3. The tier designation of a county impacts the value of a company’s eligible credits; the more distressed a county, the larger the eligible amount of the credit for the specified activity. This tier system is incorporated into various state programs in addition to Article 3J credits.
