Again.2. Payroll tax holiday: The plan would eliminate the entire 6.2 percent payroll tax on any increase in payroll (for added workers or increased wages) up to $50 million above the prior year.
Again.3. Extend 100 percent expensing into 2012: Companies can fully depreciate certain purchases in the first year (instead of having to amortize these purchases over as long as 20 years). The goal here is to encourage new investment.
Again.4. Tax credits for hiring the long-term unemployed: The plan proposes a $4,000 tax credit for any business that hires an individual who has been unemployed for at least 6 months. And considering that a recent review of job vacancy postings on sites like Monster.com by the New York Times revealed that employers have a strong preference for people who are still employed or just recently laid off, the long-term unemployed need all the help they can get.
Again.5. “Returning Heroes” tax credit for hiring veterans: If a company hires a veteran, the tax credit increases to as much as $5,600, and reaches $9,600 if the veteran became disabled in the course of serving. Unemployment rates among veterans are truly shocking (13.3 percent), so most would agree with the idea of encouraging the private sector to hire or train our veterans.
It is nice seeing the benefits of tax cuts being promoted by all though. How long do you think this will last? Until November 2012?
