Tax Credit for Keeping Workers on Payrolls Draws Bipartisan Interest

"Package there does seem to be growing bipartisan support for the idea of expanding an existing wage subsidy keep workers on payrolls and help businesses stay afloat Richard Rubin covers US tax policy for the Wall Street journal is written about this and joins us live now in the KCBS ring central news line Richard thanks for the tennis one is what we're talking about here is a tax credit and for those of us who don't cover economics for the TV basically explain how this works relative to other ideas that are out there yeah thanks for having me this is basically a a wage subsidy so basically means that the government would cover anywhere up to eighty percent of wages and benefits for an employee it in and it's really by up to forty five thousand in Valerie and benefits so what that means is that for employers that are suffering from closures or from revenue decline they would have sort of a a partner in paying their workers which is the government so essentially when we say tax credit if you dig it comes off of whatever taxi company would know does it turn into a surplus if if the number it adds up to they get a check back from the government they can basically if you know the the amount of the credit is the percentage of wages that that they would get and then but the company does to get the money is instead of sending it payroll tax instead of sending him even like the employees income taxes they just tell the government how much the employees they're withholding for the employees and they have to keep that money so one of the advantages of this is that it's really fast instead of spending money in the company and the employer just keeps it and then on top of that if there's not if that's not enough to cover the full amount of the subsidy you can file a special form to get money back faster for the IRS so this is a for a small business means the quarterly tax payments the bi weekly payrolls all that they could be sitting on cash that otherwise would be heading to Washington exactly the idea is just to turn the payroll system the plumbing of the payroll system around instead of like companies and employers spending money and they get to just keep it potentially get some back it is a real key distinction between the way this works now and under the expanded proposal for small firms versus large firms small firms from employers can get credit for paying people whether they're working or not and larger firms can get only if they're paying people not to work it's actually furloughed and your reporting founded tell Democrats and Republicans alike seem relatively warm to this idea yeah I mean for for Democrats it's a fool like the payroll tax cut the president wants but there's some advantages to it over that okay this has to be somewhat larger per employee and it's more targeted and and for publicans they're really looking for an off ramp from the six hundred dollar a week extra client benefits looking for ways to kind of support the workforce encourage hiring and and retention without necessarily keeping unemployment benefits quite as high and and so it could be tricky though going forward trying to figure out how to calibrate this because they're certainly going to be some plaintiffs out there where there's going to be extended unemployment into ministries for a long time so how do you have to manage that while also trying to encourage people to stay on payroll and hire people back
