The “California Competes” program, overseen by the California Office of Business and Economic Development (also known as GO-Biz), will boost small businesses across California via tax credits. It’s a good program. But it could take years for a small business to benefit from the tax credit, that is if the small business fulfills all the prerequisites to receive the benefit.
