This Act expands the New Economy Jobs Program by creating another means by which employers relocating jobs to Delaware may qualify for the tax credit. Under this Act, employers that relocate at least 200 jobs to Delaware will be entitled to a tax credit equal to 25% of the withholding paid by the employer on behalf of the relocated employees. If employers relocate more than 200 jobs, the size of the tax credit increases and can reach 40% if the employer relocates 500 or more employees. The Act also maintains incentives for relocating jobs into municipalities, targeted growth areas and counties, and on to redeveloped brownfields. Altogether, the maximum tax credit can reach 65% of the withholding paid on behalf of the relocated employees.
