Employers eligible for new tax breaks

Pasco employers who plan to hire previously unemployed or part-time workers this year may qualify for a 6.2 percent payroll tax incentive, plus a $1,000 business tax credit. These two new tax benefits are part of a federal law signed March 18 to encourage employers to hire and retain new workers. This tax break exempts employers from their share of Social Security taxes on wages paid to workers after the date of enactment. Employers must hire unemployed workers this year (after Feb. 3 and before Jan. 1) who have been out of a job for 60 days. The second incentive allows businesses and nonprofit organizations to claim an additional general business tax credit, up to $1,000 per new worker retained for at least a year, when they file 2011 income tax returns.
