Federal business tax credits: essential extenders and disaster zone employee retention credit update

Date:                   Wednesday, January 29, 2020

Time:                  2:00–3:00 p.m. EST New York; 11:00–12:00 p.m. PST Los Angeles

Registration:       To register for this event, go to Federal business tax credits


Several key tax credits were extended and created by the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2019, signed into law by the President on December 20, 2019. These federal tax credits encourage employers to hire and retain individuals who face hiring barriers (Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) and Indian Employment Credit), conduct business and invest in distressed areas (New Markets Tax Credit, Federal Empowerment Zone incentives), and provide employees paid family and medical leave and continue to pay employees during and in the aftermath of major disasters (2018-2019 Disaster Zone Credit). These credits can mean substantial potential savings for taxpayers.

Join us to hear our team of Ernst & Young LLP professionals discuss important developments regarding these federal business tax credits.

We will explore the following topics:

  • The Disaster Zone Credit for 2018 and 2019 disasters
  • Extension of the WOTC
  • Retroactive renewal of the Federal Empowerment Zone and Indian Employment credits
  • Extension of the tax credit for employer paid family and medical leave
  • Extension of the New Markets Tax Credit and other important business tax credits

This is an interactive webcast and we encourage you to ask questions.
