Mark Your Calendar: Location-Based Tax Incentives

Location, location, location. This familiar mantra of the retail and real estate industries now applies to tax incentives. The numerous valuable tax incentive programs available to businesses based upon their location, will be the topic of a live, 150-minute audio conference presented by CCH, a Wolters Kluwer company, on at 2 p.m. Eastern on Friday, February 10, 2006.

“Last year’s hurricanes prompted a new range of incentives for businesses in the Gulf Coast region, but there are literally thousands of incentives available for businesses nationwide at the federal, state, and local levels,” said Richard Jarvis, CCH managing editor. “In this seminar, professional will learn how to find these savings for their own firms and their clients, rather than leaving it on the table.”

Blake Christian of Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt LLP, will join Professor Charles Swenson of the University of Southern California, in discussing tax incentive opportunities including:

  • State Enterprise Zones
  • The Gulf Opportunity Zone Act
  • Sales and Use Tax Credits
  • State and Federal Hiring Credits

In addition, walkthroughs will demonstrate how incentives work in three sample states and a live question-and-answer session will give participants an opportunity to delve deeper into their own concerns.

The site fee for CCH live audio conferences is $299. An unlimited number of listeners can participate from a site. Those registering for the Location-Based Tax Incentives seminar will receive a complementary U.S. Master Mutlistate Corporate Tax Guide (2006) and a recent issue of CCH’s Journal of State Taxation. Three hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit are also available for an additional $25 per person wishing to receive a CPE certificate for participation. Participants can register online at https://www.krm.com/cch or by phone at 800-775-7654. Those unable to attend can also order an audio recording for the same price.
