Two free educational forums will be held on Wednesday in an effort to ensure business leaders are aware of the Enterprise Zone and Enterprise Credits, and the benefits qualifying companies can claim.
The Enterprise Zone encompasses portions of Chula Vista, National City and the City of San Diego, and businesses in the zone can receive tax breaks, specialized tax and financial assistance and assistance in developing and expediting development permits.
The South County Economic Development Council and San Diego Regional Development Corp. are also hosting the forums to present updates to tax laws and information on research and development credits.
The workshops will be held at the Chula Vista City Hall Council Chambers at 276 Fourth Ave. from 9 to 11 a.m., and at AMN Healthcare Auditorium, 12400 High Bluff Drive, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 28.
Speakers will include Lydia Moreno, the business incentives program manager for the city of San Diego; Brenda Voet, a taxpayers advocate with the State of California Franchise Tax Board; and Luis Rivera, director of Encore Tax Consulting Group Inc.
