Urban Enterprise Zones


Urban Enterprises

Purpose of New Jersey's Urban Enterprise Zones (UEZ): 

  • help stimulate new economic activity
  • reduce unemployment within the boundaries of each zone
  • provides incentives for businesses to come to these communities and occupy existing facilities or build new.

New Jersey Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) Status

Mount Holly and Pemberton Townships are two of only 31 New Jersey communities to qualify as an Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ). This means that companies located in the zone:

  • Pay no state sales tax on building materials, services, and most tangible personal property.
  • Can charge customers only half the usual state sales tax rate of 7%.
  • Receive tax credits for hiring previously unemployed workers.
  • Receive unemployment tax rebates.

Mount Holly's generous tax abatement program covers both new construction and renovations to existing structures. Here's how the plan works for new construction:

  • 1st year: no taxes on facilities
  • 2nd year: 20% of assessed taxes
  • 3rd year: 40% of assessed taxes
  • 4th year: 60% of assessed taxes
  • 5th year: 80% of assessed taxes
  • 6th year: 100% of assessed taxes

For improvements and renovations to existing structures, a similar tax abatement program may be available.


The Township has a tax abatement ordinance which features a Payment in Lieu of Taxes. This agreement tries to meet the needs of each company's particular requirements. This program alone can reap major financial reward for companies which take full advantage of Mount Holly's UEZ status.
