40 States regularly rely on tax incentives as an economic development tool to spur job growth. Economists across the nation agree that job creation is the key to a sustained economic recovery. As states work to recover from the recent economic downturn, legislators have been especially aggressive in pursuing job creation tax credits. Employers receive these credits when they create and fill new jobs, so the programs offer tangible benefits. States also expect that the return-in terms of the new employee’s income taxes and renewed spending-will at least meet or exceed what the state loses in revenue directed to the credit.
