GO-Biz Hosting Workshops for Businesses Interested in Applying for California Competes Tax Credit

The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) has announced a series of more than 25 workshops across California, designed to help businesses apply for the California Competes Tax Credit (CCTC).

The California Competes Tax Credit is an income tax credit available to businesses that 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 Assembly Speaker and Senate Rules Committee.

The next CCTC application period starts July 24, 2017.  GO-Biz is awarding more than $200 million in tax credits in fiscal year 2017–18

This program is open to any business planning to create new full-time jobs in the state, regardless of size or location. Businesses can access the online application here.

Since 2014, GO-Biz has allocated $492.5 million to 688 companies projected to create 70,747 new jobs and $14.4 billion in new investments.

Members of the CCTC team are available to provide technical application assistance. An application guide, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and program regulations are available on the California Competes Tax Credit page.
