Credits & Incentives
Our State and Local Tax Credits and Incentives (C&I) practice delivers value by helping clients access opportunities to offset the costs of new and expanded facility investments or expansion in their workforce. Through our relationships with industry experts and state and local economic development organizations, we can also assist with site selection and the related compliance requirements of the credits and incentives awarded to a company.
In addition, our C&I team has developed a solution for assisting companies with securing the Federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) related to the hiring of individuals who are members of specific disadvantaged groups as well as veterans. Our knowledge and experience with identifying, securing, and reporting tax credits and incentives provides confidence to new investments and job growth–and helps drive your business forward.

Navigating complicated payroll tax laws can be challenging for any tax or human resource department. Failure to follow the compliance or reporting requirements correctly could result in notices or penalties from the IRS and states. Complex payroll tax regulations and deadlines are also constantly changing, creating many opportunities for errors trying to meet payroll withholding or unemployment tax requirements in various states. With remote or hybrid work arrangements becoming more commonplace, the challenges increase to remain in compliance and reduce audit risks.
Our specialists are experienced in helping companies identify compliance requirements, establish proper registrations, develop compliance protocols and resolve past tax liabilities. Our practical approach will provide guidance on best practices for companies with multistate tax payroll issues.
