We Can Help You Pursue State Job Creation & Building Investment Tax Credits such as…
The Economic Development Incentive Program (EDIP)

Gives tax incentives to businesses that create jobs and foster business growth. The Economic Development Incentive Program (EDIP) is a tax incentive program designed to foster job creation and stimulate business growth throughout the Commonwealth. Participating companies may receive state and local tax incentives in exchange for job creation, manufacturing job retention and private investment commitments. To see if you’re eligible for these tax savings, click here. -From the Executive Office of Housing & Economic Development (EOHED)

Credit for Multi-State Organizations

If your company has multi-state tax filings, it may qualify for a reduced tax burden under Massachusetts’ Single Sales Factor tax laws. Massachusetts’ Single Sales Factor tax apportionment significantly reduces the tax burden for manufacturers and other qualifying companies. The Single Sales Factor adds to the attractive tax environment for businesses in Massachusetts – while many states use a three-factor apportionment formula to determine the net income, creating a greater burden for businesses, Massachusetts only uses a single sales factor apportionment formula. To find out if your company is eligible for this significant tax reduction, click here. -From the Executive Office of Housing & Economic Development (EOHED)
