Frequently Asked Questions

How is a tax credit different than a state deduction?

A tax credit is a dollar for dollar reduction of taxes owed to the state and hence is more valuable than a tax deduction, which reduces taxable income; the cash benefit of a tax deduction is calculated by multiplying the deduction amount by the state tax credit rate for your company.

Why should I hire an outside consultant to assist me when I already have a CPA?

We focus exclusively on helping our clients take advantage of Enterprise Zone tax credits as well as other federal, state and local tax incentives. And these niche services usually fall outside the scope of your accountant. Rather than compete with your CPA firm, we work hand-in-hand with them to bring the highest level of value possible to your company. And although we have CPAs and tax accountants on staff, we leave the tax compliance work to your CPA firm and instead focus on maximizing your tax credit benefits through our proven experience and methodologies.

Why should I consider hiring your organization?

Our background and experience lends itself perfectly to assisting companies with the Enterprise Zone tax credits. We have built a team of former Big 4 senior management professionals who have resumes which also include the California Franchise Tax Board and California Department of Commerce (now California Department of Housing & Community Development), where this program originated and is currently administered. We have been providing this service for more then 15 years to small and large companies in multiple industries.

Should I be concerned about discrimination as it relates to the questions asked?

These programs were established by the federal and state agencies for companies to take full advantage of qualified candidates and to encourage them to hire from the targeted groups. The government was careful to design a program in a manner that does not discriminate based on any EEO classifications. That’s why so many companies today are realizing millions of dollars in tax credits. The forms are also designed as a pre-screen and, therefore, can be used in assessing which job applicant to hire. Answering the questions is strictly voluntary.
