  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  The tax law is amended by adding a new section 37 to  read
as follows:
  S  37. HIRE-NOW TAX CREDIT. (A) ALLOWANCE OF CREDIT. A TAXPAYER, WHICH
IS SUBJECT TO TAX UNDER ARTICLE NINE-A OR TWENTY-TWO OF THIS CHAPTER AND
WHICH CREATES A NEW JOB, SHALL BE ALLOWED A CREDIT AGAINST SUCH TAX. THE
AMOUNT OF THE CREDIT ALLOWED UNDER THIS SECTION SHALL BE  EQUAL  TO  THE
PRODUCT  OF 6.85 PERCENT AND THE GROSS WAGES PAID FOR EACH NEW EMPLOYEE.
THE CREDIT SHALL NOT BE MORE THAN FIVE  THOUSAND  DOLLARS  FOR  ANY  NEW
EMPLOYEE  FOR  ONE  FULL  YEAR OF EMPLOYMENT; IF A NEW EMPLOYEE HAS BEEN
HIRED FOR LESS THAN A FULL TAX YEAR THIS AMOUNT SHALL  BE  PRORATED  AND
APPORTIONED TO EACH TAX YEAR BUT SHALL IN NO WAY DECREASE THE FULL THREE
CONSECUTIVE  YEARS  OF  CREDIT  ELIGIBILITY. THE TAXPAYER MAY CLAIM THIS
CREDIT FOR EACH NEW EMPLOYEE FOR A PERIOD OF THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS  OF
EMPLOYMENT.    THE  TAXPAYER  MAY OFFSET QUARTERLY ESTIMATED TAX RETURNS
WITH THE AMOUNT OF THIS CREDIT EARNED IN ANY PREVIOUS QUARTER.
  (B) HIRE-A-VET ENHANCEMENT.  FOR CALENDAR YEARS TWO THOUSAND  THIRTEEN
AND  TWO  THOUSAND FOURTEEN IF A NEW EMPLOYEE WAS RECEIVING UNEMPLOYMENT
INSURANCE BENEFITS AT THE TIME OF HIRE AND IS ALSO A VETERAN,  AN  ADDI-
TIONAL  FIVE  THOUSAND  DOLLAR CREDIT WILL BE ALLOWED FOR THE FIRST FULL
YEAR OF EMPLOYMENT.
  (C) DEFINITIONS. AS USED IN THIS SECTION, THE  FOLLOWING  TERMS  SHALL
HAVE THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS:
  (1)  "NEW EMPLOYEE" SHALL MEAN ANY FULL TIME EMPLOYEE THAT IS HIRED BY
THE TAXPAYER AFTER JULY FIRST, TWO  THOUSAND  TWELVE  AND  BEFORE  APRIL
FIRST,  TWO THOUSAND THIRTEEN, THAT CAUSES THE TOTAL NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES
TO INCREASE ABOVE BASE EMPLOYMENT OR  CREDIT  EMPLOYMENT,  WHICHEVER  IS
HIGHER.
  (2) "BASE YEAR" SHALL MEAN CALENDAR YEAR TWO THOUSAND TWELVE.
