WCED seminar touts business tax advantages of More Jobs for Marylanders Act

Worcester County Economic Development (WCED), in partnership with the Maryland Department of Commerce, will host a seminar October 5, 2017 at noon at the Riverside Grill in Pocomoke City to deliver details about tax advantages associated with the newly-established More Jobs for Marylanders Act. 

This seminar is open to manufacturers currently located in and those who wish to locate in Worcester County. Attendees will learn how their companies can take advantage of income tax benefits, workforce development programs, and increased benefits for locating in Worcester County, a Tier 1 county.

“The purpose is to gather our manufacturing industry and introduce them to new legislation that will allow them to receive impactful tax credits established July 1, 2017,” WCED Director Merry Mears said. “Because Worcester is a Tier 1 county for the More Jobs for Marylanders Act, we are able to offer our manufacturers the highest level of tax incentives allowed under the program.

Participants will also learn about the Partnership for Workforce Quality (PWQ) program, which is a customized training program, and how businesses can apply for the PWQ, which pays 50% of training costs.
“This is an important benefit to our manufacturers, as it allows them to provide the custom-training their workforce needs at affordable costs,” Mears said. “Connecting to each other as an industry will allow our manufacturers to strengthen their base here in the County and beyond.”
