The California Competes Tax Credit is an income tax credit for businesses that are expanding or relocating to California. California Competes is a tax credit program that Gov. Jerry Brown approved in 2013. It is a successor program to the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit which is phased out in 2014. In order to qualify for a portion of the allocation, the business must have expansion plans to create jobs in California over the next five years or be at risk to leave California.
