Jason Carter on Corporations

 


Incentives will attract businesses searching for a new home

We all have a stake in ensuring that communities statewide are good places to do businesses. Smarter tax policies and other incentives will attract businesses searching for a new home and will reassure workers and employers that we are committed to creating new jobs.

Unfortunately, under Governor Deal's leadership, Georgia is failing to recognize the contribution of small businesses to job creation in our state.

Jason has proposed initiatives to expand benefits for small businesses, and for his work in the Senate has earned the endorsement of the National Federation for Independent Business as well as an "A" grade from the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.

Review tax giveaways and corporate loopholes: do they help?

Q: Do you support cuts or increased revenue? Would you close some corporate loopholes?

A: One of the biggest problems we have is all these tax giveaways and we don't know whether any of them are actually helping or not. What we have proposed in the past is legislation that would review all of those tax giveaways and loopholes to ensure that the only ones we would keep are the ones that are actually productive and improve our state and generate jobs.

Job creation tax credits for small business

Q: What is your plan to increase jobs and grow the economy in Georgia?

A: would support job creating tax credits for small business. We give all these tax credits that are industry specific and we need to review those. If we allow small business to receive the same kind of treatment from the Governor that big businesses get, we will see a lot more job growth. At the end of the day, I want an economy and a community that is inclusive and works for everybody.
