Sacramento, Calif. –  The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) will host a series of 15 free workshops across California designed to help businesses apply for the California Competes Tax Credit (CCTC).

CCTC – “The California Competes Tax Credit has encouraged hundreds of companies to expand in California and add valuable jobs in the state,” said GO-Biz chief deputy director Will Koch. Koch further comments, “The on-line application is simple to navigate and the GO-Biz staff works directly with applicants to make the process as easy as possible.” The next CCTC application period starts January 4, 2016, with $75 million in tax credits available.

GO-Biz – Since 2014, GO-Biz has awarded $223 million to 330 companies projected to create over 42,000 jobs and make $9.6 billion in investments. GO-Biz will award a total of $200 million
