    3 million temporary & contract employees work for American staffing companies during an average week

    The cost of doing business is consistently on the rise and finding/retaining great employees has become difficult. For these reasons and more, companies are turning to staffing agencies to assist them with their employment needs.

    With 3 million temporary and contract workers employed for staffing companies during an average week, there is no better time than now to pursue employment-based tax credits. One in five new hires can qualify your staffing agency for $2,400 – $9,600 in tax credits.

    Hiring incentives or tax credits have been in place since the mid-70’s. They were created by the government to motivate employers to hire job seekers that have difficulty obtaining employment. Tax credits range in value from $1,200 to $9,600 per qualified hire.

    Tax credits off-set tax liability dollar for dollar. Some companies use credits in their tax planning to off-set quarterly estimated payments. Some companies use credits at the end of their tax year against annual tax liability. In the event of no tax liability, tax credits can be carried forward for up to twenty years. Consult with your tax professional for how to best use these incentives.
