Bradford Regional Airport

Economic & Industrial Development

The Bradford Regional Airport has over 250 acres that are State approved Keystone Opportunity Zone (KOZ) and Keystone Opportunity Expansion Zone (KOEZ) sites. KOZ and KOEZ parcels are eligible for certain State and local abatements expiring December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2013 respectively.

The goal of the KOZ and KOEZ programs are to entice businesses to locate in underdeveloped areas by giving them relief from many local and state taxes. Businesses must meet specific criteria set by the State, but once they qualify, property owners will pay no state or local taxes. The only exception is the 6 percent tax on retail sales.

State corporate net income, capital stock and franchise and personal income taxes, along with county, borough and school real estate taxes, business gross receipts tax, occupancy and privilege taxes, mercantile taxes and earned income are all waived.  KOZ and KOEZ parcels are eligible for certain State and local abatements expiring December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2013 respectively.

Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) benefits may also be possible.

Foreign-Trade Zone

Foreign-Trade Zones are designated sites licensed by the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board at which special Customs procedures may be used. These procedures allow domestic activity involving foreign items to take place prior to formal Customs entry. Duty-free treatment is accorded items that are re-exported and duty payment is deferred on items sold in the U.S. market, thus offsetting Customs advantages available to overseas producers who compete with producers located in the United States.

Sub zones are special-purpose zones, usually at manufacturing plants. A site which has been granted zone status may not be used for zone activity until the site or a section thereof has been separately approved for FTZ activation by local U.S. Customs officials, and the zone activity remains under the supervision of Customs. FTZ sites and facilities remain within the jurisdiction of local, state or federal governments or agencies.

Foreign Trade Zones can significantly cut business costs and improve return-on-investment and cash flow. Domestic and foreign goods can be placed in the FTZ without formal U.S. Customs entry. Pay no Customs duties or government excise taxes until your final product enters the U.S. market, at which point duty is paid on either the product itself or its component parts, whichever is lower.
