PILOT Programs

PILOT for a New or Expanded Business

The City of West Fargo is interested in investing in businesses that create a positive economic impact to the community, through the creation of jobs and that can demonstrate growth potential. Along with tax exemptions, the City of West Fargo provides a payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) program to encourage new businesses in West Fargo that bring a core industry to the area and could result in other economic benefits, such as attraction of additional industries. 

The incentives are granted, at the discretion of the city in which the property is located, to qualifying new or expanded revenue producing projects. The program is offered through and administered by the City of West Fargo Economic Development office.
