 November, 2021    Legislative Internship Tax Credit

Did you know Florida will pay you to hire an intern? You probably missed it tucked deep inside a 54 page legislative bill that, on May 21st,Governor DeSantis signed into law. The Florida Internship Tax Credit Program is real, however. This bill authorizes a corporate income tax credit of $2,000 for each student intern employed by a qualified business, up to a maximum of $10,000 in any taxable year for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2022. The program ultimately was picked up in SB 7068 and can be found in sections 23,24, and 27 on pages 11-12 of the linked bill analysis. A more substantive analysis can be found on SB 258, when the program was a standalone bill.

Want to know more? Of course you do. That's why FTC is working with Florida Senator Shevron Jones to bring you everything you need to know. Stay tuned!
