Economic Development Exemptions (EDX) are used to encourage manufacturing, research and development and warehousing/distribution companies to grow in Wichita. Taxes on improvements to land and buildings can be exempted for up to 10 years. All new business machinery and equipment are permanently exempt under state law. The percentage of taxes abated is based on job creation and capital investment.
EDX can reduce operating costs during the initial 10 years of operation following an expansion.
