The data includes small business returns, income and business index. Nine other counties in Texas are shown in comparison in a ranking from SmartAsset. Four counties, including Galveston, Haskell, Titus and Matagorda, also rank top 10 nationally.


Small business owners usually pay income taxes on company profits, which contributes to the potential financial success of the business.


With this in mind, determining factors used for the attractiveness for each region were reported tax returns compared to the total tax-filing population and small business income compared to overall income in each region.


In Dallas County, small business returns average 23.9% and income is 30.3%, which is the highest income percentage on the list. Together, this results in a 94.3 small business index.
