The Wood Energy Tax Credit allows individuals or businesses processing Missouri forestry industry residues into fuels a state income tax credit of $5.00 per ton of processed material (e.g., wood pellets). A multiplier of 4 applies to charcoal, based on the amount of Missouri forest industry residue required to produce one ton of charcoal. Any amount of credit exceeding the tax due by a company in the year of production may be carried over to a subsequent taxable year, not to exceed four years.
Quality job training opportunities are not universally available throughout Missouri. To address the gaps, the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) will make available grant funds through the State Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG).
The DED Division of Business and Community Solutions will accept proposals for financial assistance to support capital improvements and fixed equipment directly in support of successful job training programs that will increase access job training in underserved areas and for persons of low and moderate income (LMI).
