454 CMR 30.09 - Tax Credits, Incentives and Status

(1) For purposes of the determination of tax credits and other economic incentives provided by the Commonwealth or other government entity and based on employment, covered employees shall be deemed solely the client's employees. A client shall be entitled to the benefit of any tax credit, economic incentive or other benefit arising as the result of the employment of covered employees of such client. Notwithstanding that the PEO is the reporting employer for the purposes of the federal Internal Revenue Service form W-2, the client shall continue to qualify for the benefit, incentive or credit. Each PEO shall provide, upon request by a client or by agency employment information reasonably required for administration of any tax credit or economic incentive and necessary to support any request, claim, application or other action by a client seeking any tax credit or economic incentive.
(2) With respect to a bid, contract, purchase order or agreement entered into with the Commonwealth or a political subdivision thereof, a client company's status or certification under federal or state law as a small, minority-owned, disadvantaged, woman-owned business or other underutilized class of enterprise shall not be affected because the client company has entered into a PEO relationship.
(3) If there is a tax or assessment imposed or calculated upon the basis of total payroll, the PEO shall be eligible to apply any small business allowance or exemption available to the client for the covered employees for the purpose of computing the tax.
