The current Niagara Falls Renewal Community consists of census tracts 202, 204, 205 206, 209 and certain areas of CT 211 based on the 2000 census data.

Your business may qualify for some of the Federal tax incentives that accompany this designation – the Commercial Revitalization Deduction (CRD), RC Employment Tax Credit, for instance allows businesses located in the RC to claim tax credits for each employee that lives and works in the Niagara Falls RC. You may also be eligible for the Increased Section 179 deduction and Capital Gain Exclusion.

Eligibility Requirements include:

Developers and businesses specializing in redeveloping abandoned and underutilized buildings in RCs.

Developers and businesses undertaking new building construction projects in RCs.

Businesses located in RCs that cannot meet the Renewal Community Business definition (that is, they do not meet the 35% RC resident employee requirement, their employees perform services outside the RC, or too much of their gross income is earned outside the RC).
