Who is eligible?

You are entitled to this refundable credit if you or your business:

How much is the credit?

  • The credit amount equals $3,000 multiplied by the number of qualified security officers providing protection for a building or buildings owned by a taxpayer.
  • If a qualified security officer isn't employed for a full year, the credit amount is prorated to reflect the length of employment.
  • DHSES makes the final determination as to the allowable amount of credit for each taxpayer.
