The Economic Development Tax Credit (ETC) program was enacted in 2009 and eliminated five existing tax credit programs (Agricultural Development Zones, Airport Development Zones, Community Development Zones, Enterprise Development Zones and Technology Zones) and replaced them with a comprehensive program enabling businesses to earn tax credits based on jobs, capital investment, training and the location or retention of corporate headquarters.
The Economic Development Tax Credit Program offers tax credits against a business’s income tax liability. Tax credits may be earned 1) through the creation of full-time positions meeting a pre-determined rate; 2) through capital investments on property and equipment; 3) by providing training to employees; and 4) by locating company headquarters in Wisconsin.
