Gig Harbor is a great place to locate your company!
The stunning scenery of our historic waterfront community entices people to come to live, work, and play. We have a unique and historic working waterfront in a sheltered Harbor across the bay from downtown Tacoma. Much of the beauty of our city comes from the forward-thinking land use planning, that preserved the natural beauty and prevented unattractive sprawl. Gig Harbor was one of the first communities in Washington State to adopt quality design standards and growth management policies.
Our business-friendly tax structure and our pro-business economic development standards are compelling reasons employers are attracted to Gig Harbor. There is no income tax in Washington State, and there is no state capital gains tax on businesses. Locally, Gig Harbor provides an advantageous tax environment compared to larger cities such as Tacoma and Seattle.
