An estimated 300,000 metro Atlanta telecommuters skip their road trips to the office at least twice a week, according to an AJC report by Tina Brown.
Hundreds of metro companies provide such workplace opportunities — with and without the state’s tax credit, Brown writes.
The state offers up to $20,000 in tax credits to employers who participate in its Telework tax-credit program.
Additionally, participating employers are eligible for $1,200 for each new so-called teleworker on its payroll, Brown reports. The state has allocated $2.5 million for the program, which expires in 2011. The deadline to apply is Oct. 30.
