New Jersey Considering Legislation to Give Companies Tax Credit For Hiring Interns

New Jersey legislators have introduced legislation to help college students find gainful employment by providing Corporate Business and Gross Income Tax credits to employers who hire post-secondary students for internships.

This is yet another State realizing that it is important to both students entering a very difficult workforce (and with one of the highest unemployment rates currently) and for businesses facing a difficult economy.  Internships provide a win-win opportunity for both the student and the business owner.

If you agree contact your local representative and let them know that you want to start your own internship program and would like a similar tax credit program created.

  1. Samuel G. Jackson, Jr. says:

    Wonderful idea. We should be able to get bi-partisan support for a national program that gives tax credits to employers [with fewer than 25 employees] for hiring student interns. It teaches students how to become valuable contributors in the workplace. It encourages employers to develop in students the skills they want in a workforce.

    It’s the type positive reinforcement that leads to more educated and productive citizens.
