CRANSTON-The RI Department of Labor and Training continues its free employer education seminar series with a final session outlining federal and state tax credits that might reduce a company's income tax liability on Tuesday, November 28PthP, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at the DLT's headquarters in Cranston. Robust response to the first Tax Credit seminar prompted a second offering.

Seven skilled tax credit staff from DLT and the Economic Development Corporation explore tax credits relating to employee training, facility improvement, equipment upgrading, and Enterprise Zones.

Previous Employer Education workshops explored Unemployment Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, labor market conditions, disaster preparedness, and Workers' Compensation. This is the last seminar for the year. The series will continue in 2007.
