If you are looking to grow your business, then this tax credit may be just the ticket you need!

The Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) has announced the second application period is open for businesses interested in applying for the California Competes Tax Credit (CCTC).
Applications must be submitted by August 20.

The California Competes Tax Credit is an income tax credit available to businesses who want to come, stay, or grow in California. Tax credit agreements are negotiated by GO-Biz and approved by a statutorily created "California Competes Tax Credit Committee," consisting of the State Treasurer, the Director of the Department of Finance, the Director of GO-Biz, and one appointee each by the Speaker of the Assembly and Senate Committee on Rules.

Before each application period, GO-Biz hosts online webinars about the CCTC program. Each webinar consists of a 45-minute presentation, followed by a question and answer session. Each presentation includes the following:
Overview of the program.
Program goals and evaluation criteria.
Step-by-step instructions through the application process.

All businesses are encouraged to participate in the webinars to receive instructions on how to apply.
