The Enterprise Zone tax credit program offers businesses located in enterprise zone areas the opportunity to reduce their state income tax through a variety of tax incentives. These benefits can have a dramatic impact on the profitability of your business.
If your business qualifies, you can reduce your businesses’ state income tax by $37,440 per qualified employee over a 5-year period. You can carry these credits over from year to year until you use them all.
The following is an example of hiring tax credits years 1 to 5 (per employee):
|$24,960 = $12.00 hour x 2080 hours|
|Year 1 credits||$24,960 x 50%||$12,480|
|Year 2 credits||$24,960 x 40%||$9,984|
|Year 3 credits||$24,960 x 30%||$7,488|
|Year 4 credits||$24,960 x 20%||$4,992|
|Year 5 credits||$24,960 x 10%||$2,496|
