The Job Creation Tax Credit provides a $1000 tax credit to businesses that create new jobs; the credit is 2.5% of the aggregate annual wages for all newly created full-time positions. This credit is increased to five percent in revitalization zones, up to $1500 per job. Credits may not exceed $1 million per year and may be carried forward for five years. Sixty jobs must be created during a 24-month period. Eligible businesses include public utilities. In a “Priority Funding Area,” a business needs only to create a minimum of 25 new positions.
