Supporting and hiring professionals from historically disadvantaged backgrounds may be part of your business culture and values, but it could also help you increase your cash flow and reduce federal income tax liability.

The federal government and several states allow businesses to claim tax credits for certain eligible individuals and for conducting business in specifically designated areas. However, leveraging these credits without insight from experienced advisors can be a time-consuming process that poses administrative burdens.

Join us for our webcast, Federal and State Hiring and Wage-Based Credits, as we discuss the requirements for and possible savings of these tax credit opportunities.

Topics include:

  • State tax credit examples
  • Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)
  • Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC)
  • Disaster credits
