Yesterday, the President signed a bill that is good for veterans and employers. The law provides new and enhanced tax credits for employers hiring veterans. The law, effective immediately, allows employers to claim certain tax credits for hiring unemployed veterans ($2,400 in the case of a veteran unemployed at least 1 month; $5,600 for a veteran unemployed at least 6 months; and $9,600 for hiring an unemployed veteran with service-related disabilities). You can review a full copy of the act here. Its nice to be able to write about a new law that provides benefits for both employers and employee –particularly for our veterans that have served this country so well.
