Q. I was looking at your HIRE Act calculator to review the amount of tax I will save on some of the people I hired recently. I was wondering why there is no difference in the amount I save between people who were hired in February compared to those I hired in March. I thought people hired after February 3rd counted.
A. Qualifying employees hired after February 3rd do count, but the tax holiday only applies to salary paid to those employees after March 18th. Also, we offer the calculator to provide a very simple estimate that treats a hire date of April 1 the same as a hire date of April 30 . You should consult with your tax preparer for more specific saving information related to actual hire dates.
