Texas is where liberty lives.
That’s why the Lone Star State leads the nation in job creation and in population growth over the last 14 years.
As the 9th largest economy among the nations of the world and home to 50 Fortune 500 headquarters, Texas offers a business-friendly climate—with no corporate income tax and no personal income tax—along with a highly skilled workforce, easy access to global markets, robust infrastructure and predictable regulations.
That’s why Texas continually ranks as the best state for business. CEOs who relocate to Texas cite the differences as “night & day” when it comes to the improved quality of life and good schools, along with the job-ready workforce.
Lower energy costs, together with lower land costs and fewer land-use restrictions, also mean lower operating costs for businesses and a lower cost-of-living for their employees.
Those are some of the advantages that helped Texas win the Governor’s Cup for the most new and expanded corporate facility projects in the nation—for the eighth year in a row.
“Made in Texas” is a powerful label. And by unleashing the power of entrepreneurs and innovators, and securing the freedom to aspire, Texas will long remain the best state for businesses large and small.
