Sales Tax Rebates
To encourage significant rehabilitation projects or help secure a particularly desirable project, the City may grant sales tax rebates for a business as part of an overall package of incentives. These grants must be requested before the improvements are made, and are up to the sole discretion of the Wheaton City Council. Businesses seeking rebates must be willing to disclose sales. Property owners must be willing to enter into a formal agreement with the City of Wheaton, which must be approved by the City Council.
