  What are Enterprise Zones?

The California Trade and Commerce Agency established Enterprise Zones in 1984. Enterprise Zones credits are incentives designed to stimulate growth and development in selected areas within California by providing business incentives. The program seeks to promote job creation, attract new investment, and retain businesses in particular areas. The Enterprise Zone program has created thousands of jobs annually in government-targeted economic development areas.

Dental Office - San Jose
A dentist office with 17 employees previously claimed $15,000 of Enterprise Zone hiring tax credits. KBKG was engaged to review the dentist’s purchases, tax returns, human resource records and payroll for any additional benefits. KBKG’s team was able to identify additional hiring credits by focusing on qualifying criteria beyond the employees’ residences at hire.

Results: Total refunds for the project were approximately $100,000,
and KBKG was subsequently engaged to provide a cost segregation study.

This closely-held S-corporation had 45 clerical employees and previously worked with a provider to identify any qualified employees. The provider did not find any tax credits for the company. The company’s CPA had worked with KBKG on cost segregation projects and asked KBKG to perform an analysis of the records.

Results: KBKG coordinated a refund claim for the corporation
and its shareholders of approximately $250,000.
