Summary:

This bill is a concept draft pursuant to Joint Rule 208.

This bill proposes to create a tax credit for businesses that create positions that allow their employees to work remotely from their homes or somewhere else outside of their office or place of employment. The credit is directly connected to the number of remote positions created and filled. If a business eliminates a remote position, it would lose the tax credit corresponding to that position.
