Georgia Port Tax Credit Opportunity

Port tax credit bonus for job tax credits.

This “port bonus” is an additional $1,250 per job, per year, for up to five years for taxpayers with qualified increases in shipments through a Georgia port. The $1,250 is added to the Job Tax Credit.

Port Tax Credit Bonus for Investment Tax Credits 

This “port bonus” increases the Investment Tax Credit to the equivalent of a Tier 1 location regardless of the tier level; therefore, it would be equal to 5% of the qualified investment in expenses directly related to a manufacturing or telecommunications facility with the credit increasing to 8% for recycling, pollution control, and defense conversion investment.
