The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department recently updated Publication FYI-102, Information for New Businesses. This publication contains information for business owners on how to register their businesses for taxation purposes with the Department, certain requirements relating to tax information reporting such as electronic filing requirements, and Department resources for new businesses.
The main change in the document is an added section detailing the Foster Youth Employment Tax Credit. The section lays out the guidelines for a credit of up to $1,000 dollars of corporate or personal income tax for wages paid when employing a qualified foster youth in New Mexico. The credit must be claimed within one calendar year from the date of hire and can apply to multiple qualified foster youth. Before the credit can be claimed the foster youth must obtain certification from a state or federal agency.
