Your business or organization could be eligible to receive a tax credit of up to $1,000 for each net employee hired between July 1, 2020 and November 30, 2020, for a total of up to $100,000. Thanks to California’s new Main Street Small Business Hiring Credit, this credit may be used to offset California state income taxes or sales & use taxes for qualifying businesses and organizations.

Any business or organization wishing to apply must meet the following criteria:

  1. Fewer than 100 employees existed as of 12/31/19.
  2. The business experienced a 50% or more reduction in gross receipts during Q2 of 2020 (April 1, 2020 – June 30, 2020) relative to the same period in 2019.

Approval for the Main Street Small Business Hiring Credit comes on a first-come, first-serve basis, but please note that the application deadline is this Friday, January 15, 2021.
