Main Street Tax Incentive

As a business, when you pledge to donate to downtown through the Main Street Tax Incentive Program, you can apply to receive 75% of your donation back as a B&O tax credit. Donate $4,000? You'll get a $3,000 credit. And that full $4,000 is tax deductible, since the DBP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. This means you get to keep your tax dollars in your community, and help us serve you even better.
