Urban Enterprise Zone

The Irvington Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) offers a number of benefits to certified businesses and their customers. Certified businesses receive rebates against their annual State unemployment/disability tax paid on qualified employees as well as corporate tax incentives, including waiver of sales tax on qualified products purchased for the business. Meanwhile, customers who patronize UEZ-certified businesses pay only a 3% sales tax rather than 6% on most goods.

The sales tax collected at UEZ-certified businesses is returned to the local UEZ to be spent on projects that will benefit the zone, thus creating a win-win scenario for the local business, its customer, local employment and the UEZ.

For more information about the Irvington UEZ, please contact Cassandra Chatman at (973) 399-5636.

Businesses must agree to employ at least one additional full-time or two additional part-time employees once they certify as a UEZ business.

The list of UEZ-certified businesses within the Springfield Avenue Business Improvement District appears on the next two pages. If you make a purchase in any of the 53 UEZ-certified businesses, you will only pay a 3% sales tax rather than the standard 6% sales tax.
