OUR MISSION

Our mission is to provide our clients with superior service in all aspects of raising capital, and a major element of that is helping to obtain, purchase, and sell tax credits. We strive to create an efficient marketplace where both buyer and seller receive

As a Pennsylvania based company with accounting experience, we understand the Pennsylvania tax code and processes and work closely with the Department of Revenue to quickly resolve any tax related challenges. Our professionalism and integrity set us apart as the leader in the Pennsylvania tax credit industry.

OUR HISTORY

KIZ Resources, LLC is a full-service government incentives firm that was founded in 2006 because few companies were taking advantage of the many incentive programs available in Pennsylvania. Our firm assisted several businesses through Pennsylvania’s first-ever KIZ Tax Credit sale in February of 2007. Since then, we have grown to become one of Pennsylvania’s most successful tax credit transfer firms, completing over $10 million in tax credit transfers each year. Today, we work to help companies leverage funding through many sources. While our primary focus is on Pennsylvania programs, we also assist with some federal programs and are dedicated to helping companies identify the programs that best fit their company’s growth goals. Our commitment to integrity and quality ensures you receive the best service.
