Applications Available for California Competes Tax Credit

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.

In July, four CalChamber members were selected as recipients of the tax credit.

Governor Brown created the California Competes Tax Credit in 2013 to focus on helping businesses grow and stay in California. Since 2014, GO-Biz has allocated $622.8 million to 865 companies projected to create 83,414 new jobs and make $15.7 billion in new investments.
