The Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act provides incentives in the form of a payroll tax break when employers hire qualified new employees after February 3, 2010 and before January 1, 2011. Unfortunately not everyone was aware of this provision however there are ways to go back and claim the benefit (6.2% on wages paid to eligible new hires). It can amount to significant tax savings.
