Idaho Businesses Set to Get Tax Breaks for New Hires

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho House approved legislation that gives businesses a new jobs tax credit. Under the proposal passed Thursday on a 62-7 vote, companies that generate new jobs would receive a benefit for each new employee they hire. They would get a bonus $1,000 if they fill a new position with a veteran of the armed services. Republican Rep. Mike Moyle, of Star, said depending on the number of jobs, the credit would cost Idaho approximately $10.4 million next year. He said the measure gives Idaho an incentive to attract new companies. He said the state would also collect revenue in the short-term when new workers pay sales tax on goods they buy. Legislators who opposed the bill said it’s not the job of the state to pick winners and losers.
