LANSING — Employers would receive tax credits for employees in the National Guard and Reserve under legislation introduced today by Sen. Adam Hollier (D-Detroit).
Senate Bill 607 would provide a tax credit to employers who hire returning, unemployed members of the National Guard or U.S. reserve forces for a continuous period of one year. In return, the employer can file a claim for a tax credit for each service member employee who works for them.
“Service members already face many obstacles when they return home from duty,” Sen. Hollier said. “Coming home and not having a job to return to should be one less thing they have to worry about. It’s my sincere hope that employers will hire returning National Guard and Reserve members as a show of support to let those fighting for our freedoms know that they will be taken care of when they return home.”
The bill has been referred to the Senate Finance Committee.
Prior to being elected to serve residents of the 2nd Senate District, Sen. Hollier served as a volunteer firefighter before enlisting in the U.S. Army and graduating with distinction from officer candidate school, where he earned the commission of 2nd Lieutenant. He serves in the 412th Civil Affairs BN(A) as the Public Works Officer USAR, and is currently attending airborne school at Fort Benning, GA through Nov. 15th.
