Alan Khazei on Jobs
To accomplish these goals, Alan supports investing in a Jobs Creation Tax Credit, where employers would receive a refundable tax credit of 15% of salary for 2010 & 10% for 2011 for all new jobs created (up to a salary of $106,000), as well as incremental wages paid or hours worked from current employees.
Implementing a New Jobs Tax Credit would create between 2.5 to 5.0 million jobs over two years. When applied to Massachusetts, these forecasts predict the New Jobs Tax Credit would create between 50,000 and 100,000 new jobs for the Commonwealth.
