ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the struggle of some U.S. states policy makers to keep economic development incentives viable amid budget tightening. The author reports that the trends in Texas, Massachusetts, and North Carolina signify that tax abatements and incentives are still available to property owners. She stresses that to take advantage of abatement laws in their region, owners need to understand the laws governing them and stay abreast of the changes that have occurred in these laws.
