State Representative Anne Gonzales (R-Westerville) recently attended the governor’s signing of House Bill 327, which provides for a six-year trial period in which taxpayers may receive a job creation or job retention tax credit for the employment of home-based employees.

With an increasing number of companies relying on home-based workers, House Bill 327 strives to make Ohio more attractive to companies that employ such workers. According to the legislation, employers must provide health care benefits for home-based employees in order to be eligible for the credit. The Ohio Department of Development would issue a report after six years on the number of jobs the tax credit has created and how the incentive has impacted hiring trends.

“The feedback that I receive as I meet people throughout our district is that they want to work, and House Bill 327 will enable individuals to get back to work,” said Representative Gonzales. “House Bill 327 will provide for thousands of jobs for Ohioans and will encourage companies abroad to return to Ohio.”

House Bill 327 had passed with unanimous support in the Ohio House and bipartisan support in the Ohio Senate.
