As corporate tax burdens increase, employers must carefully consider all the options for offsetting rising costs. In this eSeminar, TALX experts Jason Fry and Maureen Schneider will lead attendees through a discussion of the valuable tax credits and incentives available to employers at both the federal and state levels for 2011. Attendees will learn about the proposed changes to an extension of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) program as well as the key legislative changes affecting federal and state tax incentives — including California Enterprise Zones, Federal Renewal Communities, HIRE credit and new state E-Verify requirements.
