Understanding today’s legislative landscape is critical when leveraging state and federal tax incentive opportunities, especially as new programs become available to help stimulate state and local economies. If a company is not reviewing all available programs, it may be leaving money on the table. During Staffing World 2011, Angela Lockman, vice president of tax credits and incentives, of TALX will lead an interactive session about monitoring ever-changing tax credit and incentive programs as well as related legislative changes. During “A World of Opportunity With Tax Credits and Incentives,” participants will learn how to review internal tracking operations to ensure compliance, as well as negotiation strategies for securing the most beneficial state and local governments tax credits and incentive packages. Because effective program tracking and internal compliance is
resource-intensive, this session will conclude by looking at how industry partners can take a fresh look at firms’ programs, hiring trends, and operational initiatives to enable a best-practices approach. Staffing World 2011 will take place from Tuesday, Oct. 11 through Friday, Oct. 14, 2011.
The recession of 2009-2010 caused employers’ unemployment costs to increase from 50 percent to over 100 percent.

Banker will also detail the long term impact of unemployment expenses on employers. Attendees will learn planning strategies as well as actionable tips to help mitigate risk. Session participants will also gain a clearer understanding of Federal Title XII loan balances, potential Federal Unemployment Tax increases and the long term impact of these costs over the next several years. The 2011 HRSouthwest Conference will take place from Sunday, Oct. 30 through Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011.
