California Enterprise Zone – New Voucher Requests
The uncertainty regarding the future of the California Enterprise
Zone program not only has private sector employers concerned, but also creates uncertainty
for the enterprise zones themselves since the Governor’s proposal retroactively eliminates
the program as of January, 2011. What should they do with voucher requests they
have received after January? As an example, we received notification from a
zone that they are suspending acceptance of new voucher requests because they
have no way to refund vouchering fees if the program is eliminated retroactively.
If the Governor’s proposal is defeated, this suspension will lead to a backlog of
requests that will clog the workflow at the enterprise zones, as well as limit the
ability of qualifying taxpayers to receive the vouchers in a timely manner for tax
