Updated as new expansion of KOZ legislation occurs in PA

KEYSTONE OPPORTUNITY ZONE - WATCH ZONES IN YOUR AREA

Legislation allows for Keystone Opportunity Zones (KOZ) rhymes with OZ
(it does, really, the acronym rhymes with OZ - that should have been a hint to taxpayers who still have to pay up or face loss of house, business, livelihood, community status)
 
signing of the Keystone Opportunity (KOZ) legislation on October 6, 1998 (specifically, HB 2328 or Act 92 of 1998)
 
 
First Expansion = KOEZ
(another hint, EZ)
 
Keystone Opportunity Expansion Zone and Technical Change bill (specifically Act 119 of 2000)
 
 
(YES, VIRGINIA, they get job creation tax credits, too)
 
the Act (House Bill 2498 PN 4208 or Act 119 of 2000) provides for Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax, Alternative Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax, Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax and Insurance Premiums Tax credit relief provisions that will increase the likelihood for financial and insurance institutions to locate in a designated area. Also, the Act provides for a job creation tax credit for certain utility companies that otherwise did not receive full KOZ tax relief to enhance their incentive to locate on one of the designated areas.
