Seminole, Texas is a vibrant young growing community located in the northern part of the oil-rich Permian Basin and on the southern edge of the agricultural South Plains of Texas. Our economy primarily consists of oil production, agriculture, and light steel fabrication. Gaines County has ranked among the top two counties in the state in both oil and cotton production and with the announcement of the Wolfcamp Shale discovery, we are poised to capitalize on a growing energy sector.

Complimenting Seminole’s booming business community are neighborhoods which enjoy little to no crime, a city with low unemployment, mild climate, and easy access to the mountains of New Mexico, the sandhills of West Texas, and the rugged wilderness of the Big Bend National Park. Indeed, Seminole is a quality community in which to live, work and play.

The Texas Enterprise Zone Program is an economic development tool that allows local communities to partner with the State of Texas to promote job creation and capital investment in economically distressed areas of the state. Designated projects are eligible to apply for refunds of state sales and use tax on qualified expenditures. The level and amount of the refund is related to the amount of capital investment and jobs created or retained at the qualified business site.
