The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) announced a series of 15 workshops across California designed to help businesses apply for the California Competes Tax Credit (CCTC).

“The California Competes tax credit has encouraged hundreds of companies to expand in California and add valuable jobs in the state,” said GO-Biz chief deputy director Will Koch. “The on-line application is simple to navigate and the GO-Biz staff works directly with applicants to make the process as easy as possible.”

This program is open to any business planning to create new full-time jobs in the state, regardless of size or location. Since 2014, GO-Biz has awarded $223 Million to 330 companies projected to create over 42,000 jobs and make $9.6 billion in investments.

GO-Biz will award a total of $200 million in tax credits in fiscal year 2015-16. The next CCTC application period starts January 4, 2016, with $75 million in tax credits available.  Businesses interested in applying can register to attend any of the workshops and receive valuable information from GO-Biz staff.
