ITG FAQ #1 Answer-What tax credits are available to businesses that employ Native Americans?

There are three employment tax credits generally available to businesses that do business with or employ Native Americans:

  • Empowerment Zone Employment Credit (section 1396);
  • Indian Employment Credit (section 45A)-expired 12/31/11; Currently, the Indian Employment Credit has not been extended. There is a bill that Senator Reid introduced (S.1859) that includes among its provisions an extension of this credit through December 31, 2014. However, there has been no significant action as of this date so it is not possible to say whether this bill will ever become law.
  • Work Opportunity Credit (section 51)-expired 12/31/11;
