During the 2011 Legislative Session Delegate Barbara Comstock introduced and passed legislation creating a Telework Tax in Virginia.  The legislation provides for a tax credit of up to $1,200 per employee, up to $50,000 per organization, for eligible telework expenses incurred during taxable years 2012 and 2013.  The webinar will provide additional information on the tax credit, the requirements to pre-apply and qualify for the credit, and how telework practically applies in the organizational setting.  The bill was a recommendation of the Governor's Reform Commission and supported by the Northern Virginia Technology Council who has long been a leader in promoting telework policies, as well as the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, the Virginia Small Business Partnership, and most of our Northern Virginia delegation in the General Assembly. 

Space is limited, so sign up now at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/678369122.

Delegate Comstock issued the following statement:

“I am excited to participate in the webinar and educate people on the new Telework Tax Credit.  I first started working on telework issues in Congressman Frank Wolf's office almost 20 years ago.  Teleworking is a 21st century workplace option that can reduce traffic congestion and air pollution, as well as cut gasoline consumption and dependency on foreign oil.  It also helps provide a more family friendly workplace that gives Moms and Dads more time at home and less time sitting in traffic. Telework gives employees the flexibility they need to meet daily demands and can be a great recruitment tool for businesses. Employers get the benefit of increased productivity, improved morale, fewer sick leave days used, better worker retention, and reduced costs for office space.”
