The Quality Jobs Tax Credit

Quality Jobs Tax Credit 

The State of Georgia gives tax credits to companies that pay their employees high salaries or wages.

Qualifications

  1. Create at least 50 new jobs in the State of Georgia
  2. The employees must work at least 30 hours per week
  3. The job must pay at least 110% of the average wage in the county

This credit can be used to offset 100% of a company’s state income tax liability in a taxable year.  If the amount of tax credits is greater than the company tax liability, the tax credits can be used against withholding taxes.
