    Save Money When Hiring

    ​"What?!?" How can you save money when you hire someone? By hiring individuals from specific target groups you could save money through tax credits or training reimbursements. Guest speaker Eric Levenhagen with McGladrey, LLP shared his knowledge and expertise on a variety of tax savings opportunities for small businesses.

    This webinar addressed the following credits, programs, and opportunities:

    • Small Business Job Creation
    • EDGE - Economic Development for a Growing Economy
    • WOTC - Work Opportunity Tax Credit
    • Veterans credits
    • Individuals with Disabilities
    • Mature Workers
    • Fidelity Bonding
    • Angel Investment Credit
    • New Markets Credit
    • Research and Development Credit
    • Employee Training Programs
    • Advantage Illinois
    • Enterprise Zone Credits

    We touched briefly on each of these topics to let you know, as a small business owner, opportunities of which you may want to take advantage. Of course, it is always best to speak with a trusted business adviser or tax professional to see which of these programs could be implemented in your business. If you do not have a person to speak with, you can speak with a Business Services Representative at your local Illinois workNet Center, or to a counselor at your local Small Business Development Center. You can find these types of services by visiting our Service Finder.
