When a shareholder grabs the microphone at an annual meeting and asks if the company is taking full advantage of the estimated $60 billion available each year in federal, state and local tax credits and incentives, most CEOs quickly pass the question to their CFO, who will typically provide shareholders with some level of assurance that their company is engaged in all of the appropriate programs designed to reduce operating costs and minimize tax liability.

There currently are nearly 3,000 tax credits and incentives programs in the United States, sponsored by federal, state and local governments to drive job creation, employee training, capital investment and new business development. These statutory and negotiated opportunities including point-of-hire tax credits, to property & sales tax incentives, to utility & infrastructure abatements, to name a few are available to companies of all sizes, across a broad range of industries.
