About California Competes

The California Competes tax credit is part of the Governor’s Economic Development Initiative (GEDI) which Governor Brown signed legislation to enact in 2013 (AB 93 and SB 90). GO-Biz evaluates the most competitive applications based on the factors required by statute, including total jobs created, total investment, average wage, economic impact, strategic importance and more. Companies are exempted from paying state income taxes in the amount awarded.

The California Competes Tax Credit was created by Governor Brown and is focused on helping businesses grow and stay in California. In the 2014-15 fiscal year, GO-Biz allocated approximately $150 million to 212 companies that are projected to create over 29,400 jobs and make over $7.1 billion in investments.

Companies interested in applying for California Competes tax credits can apply during the next application round which begins July 20.

Applicants complete a free, user friendly application available on-line at www.calcompetes.ca.gov. Applicants can access an application guide, FAQs, schedule of application periods, and other technical assistance documents here.
