ACTION MAY BE REQUIRED ON NOVEMBER 1, 2021
The California legislature authorized another round of funding for the “Main Street Hiring Credit”. Employers that have increased hiring since the base period (April 1, 2020 to June 30, 2020) may qualify for this credit of $1,000 per additional full-time equivalent employee.
Beginning November 1, 2021, qualified small business employers need to apply for a credit reservation through the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA). The credit reservations will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis until all available funds are allocated, so it’s important to apply as early as possible. The reservation system will be available November 1, 2021 – November 30, 2021. Qualified small businesses will be able to use the credit to offset their 2021 California income taxes or their 2022 sales and use tax deposits. (more…)
