Virginia’s 26 designated Technology Zones offer tax relief in the form of abatements, credits, deductions, deferrals, exemptions, or rebates. Local governments may designate technology zones to promote industry growth. Alternative energy is a qualifying technology in some counties. Qualified industries locating in these zones may receive permit waivers, special zoning treatment, and tax incentives for up to ten years.
