Tax Example
Assuming that a new 20,000 square foot building has been erected for industrial purposes which costs $500,000 to build and is placed on five acres which cost $20,000, the real estate taxes would be computed as follows:

$500,000.00  = Cost of Building
+ 20,000.00  =  Cost of Land
$520,000.00  =  Cost-Market Value
50%  = Tax Factor
$260,000.00  = Assessed Value
10%  =  Assessment Rate
$26,000.00  =  Taxable Value
526.24  = Mill Levy 2004
$13,682.24  =  Tax
x .05  =  Discount for Early Payment
(Prior to Feb. 15)
$12,998.13  =  Total Tax


TAX EXEMPTIONS AND TAX CREDITS
New business and industry in North Dakota may negotiate with the City of Jamestown or the County of Stutsman for up to five years partial or full exemption from local real property taxes. If a processor utilizes North Dakota grown agricultural products in their production they may qualify for a full exemption for a second five years. Payment in lieu of property taxes may be used in place of or in combination with property tax exemptions for up to 20 years for qualifying projects that begin construction after June 30, 1994. There is no sales tax levied on manufacturing equipment in North Dakota. Primary sector and tourism enterprises may also qualify for a five-year state income tax exemption.

Corporations not claiming the income tax deduction may claim a state income tax credit equivalent to one percent of the firms expenditure of North Dakota wages and salaries the first three years and one-half percent the fourth and fifth years of its operation. Renovations and improvements are eligible for exemption for up to three years from real property taxes.

Over and above the local and state tax exemptions and tax credits are the Workforce 2000 and New Jobs Training programs, which are administered through Job Service North Dakota. The City of Jamestown offers a two-year tax exemption on the first $75,000 value of a new single-family home.
