What is Senate Bill S. 1591?

This bill deals with a tax credit for hiring certain veterans. Currently, businesses that hire recently returned, unemployed, or disabled veterans are eligible to receive tax credits ranging from $2400 to $9600, with no ceiling on how many veterans a business may employ. This bill would make such a tax credit permanent while at the same time adding members of the Ready Reserve and National Guard to the list of qualifying veterans. 


This bill impacts members of the Armed Forces and businesses that both currently and might potentially employ them.

Cost of Senate Bill S. 1591
