Hey, I’m all for business and job growth, but some things need to be questioned.
What are “Opportunity Zones” and why do they exist?
Is the proposed move by the Atlanta Braves part of an “opportunity zone”?
Tax credits for businesses that already have made business decisions excluding the tax credits themselves…
Most businesses add employees to (a) increase revenue or (b) control costs better. The business does look at total cot and determine whether the marginal income is worth the marginal cost, but if $3,500 makes or breaks an employment decision, then it’s probably too close to call to make decision solely on the tax credit. So in other words, a business doesn’t need the tax credit since it makes the decision based on other costs anyway- it’s just a bonus that goes into the business owner’s pocket to pay for other cost increases.
