Philadelphia Eagles take a pass on tax credit for Vick
Michael Vick is back on the field, now playing quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. That means his new employer is entitled to a $10,000 tax credit available from the Philadelphia Mayor's Office for the Re-entry of Ex-Offenders (MORE), payable to employers who hire people who have been released from prison. MORE is part of the U.S. Conference of Mayors Program, and is at least partly funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It involves multiple partnerships between correctional facilities and states, and states and the fed, and other combinations.
