The President first made mention of the jobs tax credit during his 2010 State of the Union Address. As proposed, it will offer a $5,000 tax credit for each new job created, up to $500,000 per company. Businesses also have the option to raise wages or hours or receive reimbursement for Social Security payroll taxes. According to USA, quoting White House sources, the end result, either way, is to lower the cost for businesses to hire workers.
